    Default Steering Wheel Play...

    Took my car to the dealers this morning to have my steering checked out, also had first service done while there.

    The initial problems was, there seems to be 1/4 to 1/2 inch play in the steering wheel. Tires/Presures etc all ok.

    I've just picked the car up and still the issue with the steering wheel... has anyone else experienced this problem?

    i had a similar problem with an old escort after the steering rack was replaced. about an inch of completely free play. felt really wierd to drive. turns out the mechanic had forgotten to tighten one of the bolts! not saying that's your problem... but take it somewhere else and get it checked out if you aren't convinced.

    My car is 4 months old from new and i had play in the steering wheel as well.

    too it too the 1st garage and all they did was tighten the U joint up and of course didnt fix it.

    took it to the 2nd garage and they replaced they U joint and it is fantastic no more play, problem is though they have ordered me a new drivers seet as mine is knackered?

    oh well not bad for a 4 month old car.

    Someone else on here had a similar problem, I told him it wouldn't be the nut that holds the steering wheel in place being loose, as the column is splined so the wheel still wouldn't have play in it, but turns out it was a loose steering wheel nut...
