    Floppy steering

    Hello everyone, does anyone know what needs to be sorted or replaced as I seem to have a vertical play of about 3mm on my steering wheel/shaft?...Thanks!

    Have you recently replaced the steering wheel?

    Sounds like the tolerance ring is missing.

    This thread can be helpful. You need the spring (pn 914 347 713 00) and bush (pn 695-347-725-00) shown in post 22.

    If necessary, please post a picture of the shaft on your steering wheel and the column in the car.
