Vertical Steering Wheel Play
This is actually occurring on my M6 GC but given the similarities between the F10 M5 and my gen M6 (plus there being more traffic in this forum), I figured I'd give it a shot here.
Driving into the office this morning, I noticed some vertical play in steering wheel:
I've driven this car for a week straight as the others are being worked on, and I'm 99% sure I would have noticed or felt this. The only thing I've worked on recently (days ago, Saturday) was when I swapped an AVIN headunit into the car. I'm guessing I could
have mistakenly yanked on the steering wheel somehow while working on the headunit/sitting in the driver seat but again, I hadn't noticed the play in the steering wheel after then and before today.
Has anyone heard of or seen anything like this before? BTW, the switch to control the height/tilt/telescoping of the wheel itself works fine as does the adjusting - it's just the vertical movement in the steering wheel that's noticeable if I pull on it hard enough.
