steering column bearing
I noticed yesterday that the steering wheel on my F250 all of a sudden had a lot of vertical play. I took off the plastic casing around the column and took a look with a flashlight. There were plastic shavings and metal filings in the bottom cover when I removed it. It appears that the bearing is gone, hence all the play.
How long a job is it to change the bearing in an F250 column? I do not intend to do it myself, but just want a rough idea so I know if the dealership is trying to rook me or not. I unfortunatley have not had great experiences with him in the past. If anyone has the Ford labour estimate book and can look it up, even better.
Many thanks in advance for any info provided.
