hello folks. been a lurker for quite a while on the forum really enjoy the different post. anyway moving on. took the wifes mk3 for its mot which normally passes no problem. anyway it failed on track rod end and some brake pipes, not much to do there but the one that's confusing me is this fail on the steering. it states the steering rack has excessive free play detected at the steering wheel to the extent that safe steering is affected (steering rack fitted) offside front (rack end) he did mention that the hockey sticks were very worn, are these those tie bars I,ve never dealt with these. anyway any help gratefully received. grumpy gramps

did he say hockey sticks? or drum sticks?

He maybe talking about the steering arms. They have a bush where the arm bolts to middle of the steering rack, however I don't think i have ever seen one worn out! Worth a look though, or get someone to wiggle the steering while you look?
