Steering column vertical play after fitting removable wheel

Recommended Posts

I had my oem steering wheel replaced today with a B&G removable kit from Seriously Lotus and a Momo Tuner wheel.

After it was fitted and after a 30min journey and a visit to the local s/market, I was just manoeuvering out of the car park when suddenly the wheel/boss/column assembly moved vertically by about 1-2 inches. I initially thought the boss hadn’t been tightened on the splines but subsequent investigation showed that was all good. I’ve been driving the car a month on the oem wheel with no play whatsoever; it’s only today after the removable wheel was fitted did I get the problem but only after a 30 min drive.

Anyone have a clue what it could be? Car is a 2016 350 Sport.

It’s going back to the guys that fitted it tomorrow (they did send out the guy that fitted it to be fair to look at it at my home address but he couldn’t resolve it there and then).

What was it in case anyone else gets a similar issue?

I presume that it was simple?

Sorry for delay in replying. Yes it was simple, a large spring that sits behind the boss was not re-installed - doh!
