Default steering intermediate shaft

04 ION sedan. My steering wheel has about 15 degrees of play in it and I noticed the steering shaft that goes through the floor moves from side to side a little (maybe it is bad?). Just wondering how hard it is to chnge that shaft and any tips to do so. I plan on locking the input to the rack to make sure the play I feel is in that shaft. Thanks for any advise.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: steering intermediate shaft

So today I got under the car. I locked the rack with a pair of vice grips, had my wife turn the wheel and found out that the rack's input shaft moves from side to side. That is where my play is coming from. Looks like I'll be getting a new rack.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
