    Ive got a bit off play in my steering, nothing drastic but definitely noticeable, I read on another forum about some kind of adjuster on the steering rack anybody know anymore info on this how easy is it to get at etc, wanna try that before replacing track rods, ball joint etc

    Before you condemn the rack, check where the play is as it maybe one of those components, there are no adjusters afaik, only the tie's can be adjusted via the threaded & nut locking fixing.

    forgive me if this doesn't make sense:uhm:, if i try it with the ignition off, (effectively power steering off) and it still does is will that mean its the rack, or will the rack still move under a little bit of force?
