    Corsa C - Steering column shake?

    Hi,

    My wifes car recently went for an MOT and it failed because the steering wheels shakes/vibrates. This happens when going over bumps and has done for years. Looking online it seems a common problem, anyone came across this?

    How would the tester know it shakes going over bumps?

    Is the steering stiffer going one way than going the other? If so then you may be able to adjust the sensor on the column, which alters the power assistance when turning left or right.
