BMW 740IL Steering problems : 1.
Three Years Ago I Bought An Aftermarket Center Steering Link For My Car….made In China. After Three Years, I Detected Significant Play In The Center Link Where There Should Be None. I Order A Second One And Replaced It. After Three Months I Detected Play In The Steering Link, Not As Bad As After Three Years, But There Should Be Zero Play In This Part. I Replaced It Today With And Oem Part And Wanted To Report The Defective Part Which Is Being Sold In High Volume On The Internet (ebay). I Believe Should This Part Fail Completely, It Would Result In Loss Of Steering And Could Result In A Major Accident. I Will Retain For A While The Part I Removed If Someone Is Interested In This Issue.
