Mk4 Spit parts wanted

Recommended Posts

The steering locks are getting thin on the ground, and can command quite high prices.


May be better to wrap the column in tape so it doesn't look like it ever had a steering lock, and mount a switch on the dash.


Hopefully the MOT guy will not remember the car is supposed to have a lock.

Not a problem for the MoT :


The inspection of the steering lock only applies to passenger cars with:

. a steering lock fitted as standard by the manufacturer, and

. four or more wheels, and

. not more than 8 passenger seats excluding the driver’s seat, and

. first used on or after 1 September 2001



If there is doubt as to whether a steering lock was originally fitted, the benefit of the doubt should be given.

My emphasis.



but, if fitted, I would want it working properly.
