    Default Steering Issue.

    Recently had an MOT test, and it came back I had "Slight play in the steering wheel". Made a post about this shortly after and someone mentioned about a "pinch bolt" or something where the rack sits in the engine. Had a look today but could not see any "pinchable bolt". Someone point me in the right direction thanks!

    never came across the issue before tbh mate...the play in on the steering could be rack related ..it will be felt when the load is on the car ie..not jacked up..the vectra is very very common for trackrods

    Have had the car for 2 months or so, the drive felt normal, and it hasn't changed since owning it, but obviously something's wrong with it or the garage wouldn't have flagged it up! Will have to look into this.
