    Check if the connection may got loose only. If you are lucky. If not then a used or new one will have to be bought

    LOL! I'm in Brisbane. Only people who live in Sydney, like Sydney. Nice place to visit but you wouldn't want to live there, it's too busy.

    Another cause of heavy steering is battery failure. You need to "load test" a battery, just putting it on a voltmeter is not good enough.

    Did you ever get it sorted with the council? I hit a pothole a few weeks ago which bent an alloy busted a tyre and the car needed tracking. Still haven'y heard back after they "opened my case".

    I read recently many Councils drag this stuff out as long as they can. Like 18 months if you let them. All in the hope you drop your case of course.....

    connorg yes ive been offered a settlement fee which ive accepted,the downside is that they are only covering the parts which at the end of the day is dosh i might not of got so 435 is not bad,i think that if you try and go for more then you might encounter a longer payment date,i think that it was down to all the paperwork i sent and a sd card from the dash cam of the impact so all good oh it was only a two month turn around aswel
