A few more jobs sorted on the daily today.
First job was to take my track car steering wheel out and replace it with my newly refurbed ‘Snappy’ wheel.

After removal I got a few extra warning lights that I wasn’t expecting. ABS, ESP and SERV lights usually point to the steering angle sensor. It’s been fine up until now, so I guess it’s just decided to give up the ghost.

The sensor appears to be positioned correctly with the Yellow circle and Black dot centred nicely in the window.

A quick check of the live data on the diagnostic confirm my suspicions. No movement from the sensor when turning and the obligatory -81922.75 degrees fault.

Luckily I have a few spares from when my Track car had issues. It’s a fairly easy process to replace with a few torx screws to remove from the lower steering cowel and the sensor then unclips from the squib.

After replacing the sensor, the diagnostic now shows ‘0’ degrees and a quick turn left and right alters the angle telling me it’s functioning correctly.

After putting it all back together, it was just a case of clearing the old fault codes and no more lights. Happy days.
