Hi Recently went for Warrant of Fitness check and they would not pass it because they said there was too much play in the steering box. Talked to the mechanic at the WOF testing station and he said it was a common problem with X-Trails. Something to do with the electric steering box. Can anyone help throw some light on the problem and the likely fix, please.

X trails are a mess. Why copy Honda CRV?
Hi SteveX funny enuff before I bought the x-trail I spoke to my mechanic friend asking him if there were any inherent probs with x-trails. He said none he knew off but a Handa -CRV was a better option as they had bulletproof engines and crv gearboxes. looked around and they were all $5000 dearer for much mileage.
hopefully, this one will see me out haha. Looks like electric steering boxes have inherent probs. might have to invest in an oil can to keep it lubricated.
