that white bush (steering angle sensor sits on top of it) have to be tightened onto the splined rod. I've done this about a year ago and I can't remember exactly but in any case that bush has to be taken off.

Then I've used metal epoxy potty to take out the play between the outer sleeve and that bushing. Lay the metal epoxy down and press the bushing in when the epoxy has just begun to harden.
