Steering wheel play in vt commodore

mcholden1, Dec 16, 11:42pm
i failed my wof to day as my steering wheel has excessive play left right and up down im assuming it is the upper bearing in the column the inspector told me it was a common fault in the early vt. so how hard is it to fix the bearing as ill be doing it myself

There is an upper plastic bush that stops that play and is ok to do if you have the correct gear.steering puller etc. If it has SRS airbag then don't touch it but take to a reputable garage. Cannot remember if that model has the SRS a/b.
