2000 Estate steering


Recommended Posts

I am noticing some play with the steering wheel - moving up and down a bit. I've checked the steering wheel adjustment clamp, but that seems very tight, so I'm wondering whether I need to replace the steering column support bush? Does that make sense?

Right, have ordered new support bush....is it hard to fit?

Yes and no,

Disconnect steering column wiring looms from multiplugs

Undo upper steering column UJ bolt in engine bay

Undo 2 bolts that hold column to dash, and the 2 bolts in the mounting that attaches to the bulkhead

Pull column out - usually its rusted in the UJ joint !

remove bush

insert new bush - these can be a pig as they are now poly - heat it in warm water helps

reverse proceedure !

what can go wrong - they are usually very tight in the new busk and hard to reinsert
