Re: Replacing steering lock bearing

For what its worth I purchased a new lock housing with bearing included (cheapo one of eBay) it turned out to be a worn housing and not the bearing, although the new bearing that came with housing had loads more play in it than the original German one ?

Old bearing new housing = no play :-)
