Steering Angle Sensors?!

I love my Ph2 172, but more and more parts of getting harder to get hold of.

I had a right carry on trying to source an ABS sensor, likewise with the bulkhead brake pipe in the engine bay. Now it needs a steering angle sensor and I'm finding the same.
There are a few out there in the Renault family that look the same, but I can't imagine they'll be compatible will they? Even the Dacia Duster one looks like it could work.
There seem to be two. One which is square-ish and one that is round-ish. Great descriptions I know.

Is there any way round this if I can't find one? I don't care about cruise control or ESP or anything, but this SAS fault is giving me an ABS light and the associated troubles that come with that.
What can I actually do? To clarify, the sensor is reading -890000 degrees or something stupid like that. The value also doesn't change when you turn the wheel.

I suppose I am catastrophising. I just keep wondering if I'll have to bin the car off because I can't get some random bit.
I'll give them a try.

Bought a new sensor, fitted it. Haven't moved out of the garage but the code reader is still showing the steering angle sensor value as being -80something thousand degrees.
Is there something else that may be causing it? The number looks too close to what it was last time to be a coincidence...
All the ABS sensors are reading fine, no codes etc.
Getting on my tits now!

  Whichever has fuel
I had a few issues with this. Thankfully my mechanic is an absolute legend with all things Renault and is on this very forum!

@lemonnobby - can you assist??

Ah yes I did see that procedure last time I was fannying around. Turn 5 degrees etc?
Will try that.
