    What year / model? The B often has a bit of play in the top bearing - but unless it's severe they'll usually MOT OK.

    I thought it would be about that age, a lot of them do it. Personally I'd live with it, but if you want to sort it then you'll need to take the steering shaft out - note that the bolts are shear bolts which means drilling them out, which is why if it passes the MOT I'd live with it on a car that age.
