    to spray some penetrating oil / Fluid film etc is very easy to do,]
    Open the front hatch

    If you look from under the gauge cluster, between the 2 front vent fittings back toward the rear of the ski you can see the very bottom of the steering assy were it joins the hull plate ,
    I just put the nylon tube on my spray can and aim it on to the bush /shaft and it will then run inside,

    Then you will be able to see if it helps your problem, if it does then its your choice if you wish to pull it apart and grease or just be content with a thin spray grease with the same method..

    if still loose connect the nozzle ,
    If still tight it sounds like your cable, Did you route it correctly , was it a new cable
