Steering column movement, Common?

Post by 8bit-ash on Mon Feb 28, 2011 4:06 pm

Had my MOT today which the van failed on excessive steering column bearing wear. (plus other stuff) Before I pull it apart and have a look I thought i'd see if movement is normal as they're so basic.
I just have a bit of movement of you wiggle the steering wheel side to side.

Resurrecting this thread to see if there is any additional or up to date information on this. My HiJet failed it's MOT two years ago and I've decided to resurrect it from its storage and sort it out. Looking back at the MOT fail it has excess movement in the column. I've been and tried it and whilst holding the steering wheel and rocking it it has a fair amount of movement. Is it a bush or a bearing in there does anybody know to save me tearing it all apart?
