Hello all, my daughters Clio 1.4 RT 1994 failed the MOT today. They have said excessive play in the steering, and excessive play in the top mounts. Phone my local dealer, about £30 each for the top mounts and £180 for a new steering column. They said it is common for play in the lower bit of the column, but you cannot buy it on its own, does this sound right ??
Thanks in advance, regards Damian. :) :)

You sure its the column and not the Pinion in the Rack that is defective?

:) Not sure, just going on what the dealer told me, column was a common bit to wear, the rack more uncommon. Just wondered what you thought ? Would the worn top mounts affect the steering ? Best regards Damian. :)

Hi DJ - as far as I know the universal coupling to the column can't be replaced separately - but before buying stuff find out exactly what is required. You may be able to pick up a good second hand one from a scrapper.:)
