    Has anyone every had to do any work on the UJ at the bottom of the steering column? Reason I ask is I have a strange "Loose" type feeling when I shake the steering wheel and it can sometime be felt when driving. More annoying than anything. I have had all the suspension components checked/replaced and it is still there.

    So after reading some posts on other forums, I am reckoning that the UJ may be loose or indeed needing replaced due to play. Although it looks like this a rare fault on a W203, I suppose it could still be the issue.

    So is it easy to get to and check for play? Any pointers would be great!
