The steering wheel on my car is a little bit loose, it has about 1/2 an inch play when I force it to rattle.

I would like to know if this is a serious problem, its MOT is up in a couple of months. Will this be a fail?

Also, does anybody know if this will likely be an expensive job and is this a common problem in clio's of this year?


Hope you can help.
