R107 Steering box adjustment? Really?

Regarding the procedure to "adjust steering torque" I am wondering if this is used to remove free play in the steering wheel. I have about 3/4" of play in the wheel. The other components in the steering system appear okay but I really need to check more carefully before pulling the steering box. I have been told one has to remove the steering box, exhaust manifold or both. What is correcct?

I have been told that the procedure may not help my problem and it is only for setting torque of the steering wheel and the free play is a worn worm gear and cannot be adjusted out.

Do I need a new steering box to eliminate this condition? It can't be. Please advise.
