    Mark,

    I had play in my rudder (GL450) not sure if the same issue as you, but traced to the bolts from cockpit sole that fasteners too of rudder. Tightening these and then ensuring correct tension on wires onto quadrant from wheels resolved this. I was still a touch concerned and had the bearings on rudder replaced when next out of water and it all feels a lot more positive and reponsive since. Also since doing this autopilot seems to be a lot more accurate in heavier weather. Hope this helps.
