I posted a message in here a few weeks ago about excessive steering play, and had several responses referring me to the adjustments already mentioned (steering box and steering column).

I don't have facilities to work on my car myself, so booked it into a local dealer, telling them what needed to be done to fix it. They did it in less than an hour, and completely removed the play. I could feel the difference before I'd driven the car out of the parking lot.

This was after taking the car to three other dealers, who all told me that the play I had was completely normal!
