Recently replaced steering column. Old one was fine until I buggered it up taking the wheel off. Nice 'N' Tight, like it should be. U8 one from M-B has about 3-4 in slack before anything starts happening. Connector link is old one, only the part that holds all the Switches was changed, so it's a solid shaft. So where did all this Loosey-Goosey suddenly come from? Only place I can think of is the lower splines on the new shaft are worn and the Connect link isn't tight enough. It went on tight, had to tap it with rubber hammer to seat.
