    Lightbulb Play on steering wheel

    Hi all I had a 2002 Mk1 Zafira fail MOT for excessive movement on the steering wheel. There is 2-3mm movement when the steering wheel is pushed and pulled and slight horizontal movement as well. I took off the steering wheel and it seems to be the upper bearing on the steering column that is worn. I pumped in some grease and it improved it slightly but not enough. Has anybody replaced or got details on bearing size. Also Airbag warning light came on when I reassembled every thing, probably needs an anayliser reset got any ideas?

    those bearings never used to be made available seperatly, not sure if anything has changed otherwise you have to replace the lot i'm afraid.

    reasons for light, forgot to plug the squid/airbag in, had the ignition on whith said parts removed or you got the squib on wrong when you refitted it and damaged the ribbon inside

    Got an e-mail from a breaker who said that they had the bearing. Going to call them in the morning, will update if I get details.
    The ignition was switched on when the airbag was disconnected to release the steering lock this prob. caused light, does it need a reset? Bye for now.
