I've got a 1996 1.6 astra premier which is just been through an MOT.

If an MOT has listed "steering column top bearings worn" as an advisery can the top bearings just be refurbished/fixed or replaced as Vauxhall are saying that i would need a whole new steering column.

The car does have air bags if this makes any difference.

Any advice would be appreciated as having to pay for a new steering column plus labour would be alot more than the value of the car.
