Knock in the steering column at standstill

  Clio 172

My 172 ph2 has a knock coming up through the steering column when the steering wheel is rocked. It is most noticeable when the engine is off.

I have disconnected the track rod ends from the hub to take the pressure off the steering rack and my problem still persist.

Is it common for the universal joint in the steering column to develop play on these? The only other option it could then be would my steering rack. Again, is this a common replacement part or are they pretty solid?

True. The racks arnt a lifetime part, I would know this far too well unfortunately.
