    Does the steering column go up and down easily? It maybe something simple as the column is not sliding.
    My truck (<------- in picture) which is 40 ft ( 12.19 metres) always fought me when I turned the corner. The answer was the column. It was not sliding. Changed it my self. So that issue was solved. year 2005.

    Had the same problem. Steering column replacement fixed it right away. It seems like all Volvos have the same problem. Good luck

    Hello everyone. I have this problem with my 2012 volvo vnl 630 D13. I got this truck in 2016 and sense that year I had to replace the steering gear box every year so due the math. I been through 5 gear boxes. When I first installed sems fine for a while but in 4 to 5 months start to have to much free play and I have no choice but to replace it again please help

    You do know that the free play is adjustable and its normal operating pratice to adjust steering freeplay.

    It may be as simple as U joints from steering shaft. They do tend to "freez " if the rubber bushes are busted and can't hold the greas.
