Hello all

I was looking to adjust my steering box since i found the procedure on bmwe34.net, but first i wanted to know if there is any danger of ruining the box by doing this...

Thanks

Before you adjust the box, I would inspect the front suspension very closely. Chances are you will find a worn suspension piece causing the play in the steering. Be very careful not to over adjust which could cause the box to bind (not a good thing to have happen going into a turn).
