S7 Steering Column Bearing

Recommended Posts

I know this topic has been covered before, but I thought this may be helpful to others. I have a little amount of play in the steering column and have decided to do the mod using the pressed steel housed bearing as below. I found the bearing on e-E-bay for £5.90 inc postage which I think is a good price. SBPFL205 - SLFL25 is the part number. I simply entered "pressed steel bearing housing" in the search and got loads of results with lots of options.

Thats the link that shows you how. They are hard to get at, well mine is, its under the pedal box if you attack from the engine bay or down the footwell from inside the car. You need U/Js in your arms and they need to be 6 foot long. :crazy:

All nuts tightened with steering column is situ.

 

Hope this gives you some help.
