steering colum bushes
« on: 20:07, Mon 04 July 2011 »
it seems my steering column bushes have gone, and now I have excessive left/right/up/down play in the steering wheel. I have been away on holiday the last 2 and have had no time to get it sorted, when returning last night I discovered that our transport to T in the park is a no-go! :(

an option is to use the 5, but its a 260 mile round trip and have no idea how safe or unsafe it would be.

I have not used the 5 since the play started so would it be ok to use it?  how serious is the knackared colum bushes??

Have a look first and make sure they haven't just popped out.

I'm sure mine worked its way loose and i just pushed it back into position. Has the movement got worse over time or just suddenly started?

tbh i never noticed it working loose, just sort of gave way with a clunk when turning into a tight driveway.

I wil go and see if I can have a look tonight before it gets dark.

Even if they were fecked, is it safe to drive?
