If they were advisory last year and you've done a few miles they will probably need replacing by now.

:shock:

Looks like you will need, or soon need, two front steering arms, quite common for Volvos of that era.

Properly worded a fail for this item reads 'offside steering arm has relative movement at it's fixing'.

There is no advisory for this item that us testers can click on so he's used a different section to get the same point across. I manualy type it in

Anyho the steering arms connect the steering rack to the road wheel at the track rod end. They are quite cheap compared to a complete steering rack so dont get forced into buying one. Takes about half hour a side and will need tracking to be re aligned afterwards

Last year my H Reg Volvo 940 got an advisory issued

Nearside steering system has slight free play detected at steering wheel [2.2.A.1b]

Offside steering system has slight free play detected at steering wheel [2.2.A.1b]

Therefore would this be a fail this year? Also what does this point too? Steering Rack? Steering column?
