"Due to a supplier manufacturing issue, the steering column outer tube on some of the potentially affected vehicles may have been manufactured out of specification (out-of-round). This may cause stress to occur at the upper bearing. In rare instances, this stress may cause the bearing retainer to fracture and lead to excessive play in the steering wheel."
