Steering column click

Recommended Posts

I went to get a roadworthy inspection for rego on the S2 and the place I took it to noted that the steering column had a noticeable click (or notch) about every half rotation. I felt it myself while it was up on the hoist. Can't feel it on the road while driving though.

First stupid question... is this normal?

Second question... what needs to be done to fix it? Bearings? UJ?

Thanks.

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

My guess would be the UJ, possibly the lower one, its the one that went on mine and gave a similar symptom before it seized, then again the UK has a lot more rain to make things rusty :D
