Steering Wheel movement

Postby sb2665 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 3:17 pm

The steering wheel on my 06 M35x can be moved diagonally up and to the right. The movement is slight (quarter inch). Steering wheel will not move hard left, up, down, or right but diagonally up and to the right. It's been this way for years but recently it failed inspection at a new station. Any idea what might be the cause? Thanks

Is that the main/only reason the car failed inspection?

The reason is a worn sleeve bushing within the steering column covers at the joint where the steering wheel tilts up. I replaced it by "borrowing" from a less worn used part.
I am not sure where you could buy the correct sleeve/bushing/bearing though.
