loose wheel

Is the wheel loose on the shaft or is the shaft assembly moving (loose)?

Not sure which helm the 2003 has - however it if you take off the steering wheel and the room the plastic cowling it will expose the helm steering joint. There might be - mine has it but I have an older boat - a hex head bolt to tight the helm assembly. There also might be two depending on model. See picture - arrow pointing to bolt.
