I've had my Mk2 1.6TDCI for 5months now. I bought it with an advisory on the MoT for 'Play in steering rack inner joint(s)'. I have now however noticed that when steering, the steering isn't smooth, and seems to shift a little bit more than the steering wheel. When the engine is off and the steering wheel is rotated from side to side, there is a very noticable knock in both directions.

So, are we talking a problem with the steering rack (pinion?), the track rods or the track rod ends?

If it could be more than one thing, is there any way of further diagnosing?

Oh, also, my tracking seems to be out, as I'm getting uneven tyre wear, just in case that is relevant.

Thanks for any help.
