Since buying my SZ,
the steering has been loose. It feels like free play at the centre
and made negotiating bends at speed "interesting"! The
previous owner didn't know what the problem was..
Worst case scenario
is a worn steering rack which needs replacing, but before splashing
out a small fortune it's worth checking your mounting bolts! The
steering rack mounting bolts sometimes work loose, allowing the
steering rack to move and producing sloppy steering.
