First thing I noticed today on my brand new 2032R was the steering seemed sloppy. The whole tilt mechanism has play in it. I noticed the same on a 1025R with tilt steering. My 2320 has very solid fixed steering and I use it to help get in and out of the tractor. With the play in the 2032R not only does it not give you a feeling of a solid connection to the machine, I would be hesitant to put any force on it when getting it and out of it. This topic started on a similar thread but it does not describe exactly my issue.

I'd have a quick look around, might just need something tightened and a dab of Loctite added. Could save you the time and possible expense (if you have them pick it up) of the dealer looking at it.

Ask them to pop he steering wheel cover off and check the nut as a starter. That might cause them to have to look deeper, but at least someone at the dealership would be more aware of the problem.

Is your wheel as loose as the one in the video you posted? I'm chasing steering wheel looseness on my 1025R but it is nowhere near that bad. Seeing the video actually has made me think my tractor tilt steering wheel play is almost normal. :unsure:

Not sure how bad mine was.

Wow, that's really loose. I have a 1025 and it is tight. I still won't use the wheel to pull my self into the seat, so maybe it will stay that way.

This. I don't use the steering wheel on ANYTHING to climb into the seat, it ain't made for that and will get sloppy by doing so.

The video is of my steering wheel and I don't use the steering wheel to get on. The steering wheel in the video is my 2032r, my 1025 was the same.

And BTW the OP's tractor is brand new still at the dealer with excessive play in the steering wheel.

Broke mine down. Seems like the culprit is a plastic type bushing.

I think I found the part # and correct diagram. But it listed a qty 2 required, looking at the diagram it does show an upper and lower. I don't remember seeing a lower but also didn't know to check. I'll update later. Items #1 in the exploded diagram.
