Thank you Urrell. I watched the 14 minute video, and after about 8 minutes I dropped off.How is that not Skoda related or technical enough? it's behind the steering wheel in every single one.
Or can you not get your head around it.
If inside the clockspring was not technical enough for you you must be a rocket scientist or something.Must have missed the bit about Skoda and Technical.
There are several here that have done just that because of a failed clockspring.Will certainly bear it in mind the next time I take my steering off.
That means that my long ago friend who drove his mini with only a set of mole grips to steer it would be ... (supply your own epithet).Those functions including the power steering itself Jimmy. Which on most modern cars is 100% electrically provided. With no hydraulic power to the steering rack at all.
I went to a naval college, where sex education was not taught.Do you remember (older members only perhaps) the "sex education" you got at school? I always felt that this was an attempt to stop too much fiddling about by showing how much could become disarranged by doing so. Never stopped me, but I wouldn't fiddle with a "clockspring".
Don't want to get saddled with lots if slippery greasy ribbon cables.
