got told my car when on it's MOT 6 months back, had some play in the steering rack in the advisory.

nothing to worry about the bloke said.

just wondering what exactly it is and no doubt the stupid cost associated with it! lol

cheers

If you sit with the key in the ignition and it turned on but without
the engine running give the steering wheel a slight move in either
direction as if you was trying to turn.

You may get a slight feeling of it doing nothing as if its not
attached (over a range of about 2-3 degrees).the problem is where the input from the column goes into the rack the
gears wear and it causes play.
