    Default Steering Play.

    Alright chaps, been browsing on here for a while , but just took the plunge and registred today. Got a problem with play in the steering on my 07 SRI. Reading on here a few members on here have had similar problems and most have managed to get it sorted. Only had the car 2 months, been to the dealer to have it sorted with no success. They've done all the checks that have been mentioned on here(they say) yet its no better. Bloke on service desk basically said that its safe, but seemed unwilling to say what else they could do with it. Got feeling they couldnt be bothered with it to be honest. Any suggestions? Please.

    Has anything been changed by them, apart from just looking ?

    No, they just checked over everything(their words), and could find nothing physically wrong.

    Steering rack or/and track rod ends most likely. They changed mine under warranty after I told them to.

    I assume he means play when jacked up. You can feel it when driving too as tramling/play.

    Parked AND driving. When the steering wheel is turned nothing happens for the first few degrees of turn.

    Had this on my 07 1.8 Sri. It was a loose nut and bolt on the steering universal joint. Took it back to the dealer as I had the car only 2 weeks and the fixed it under warranty. They replaced the nut and bolt and all is OK now.
