Exclamation A class steering angle sensor

Hi all, does anyone have any tech spec or pictures for the assembly of the steering column?
I have an ABS, BAS & EPS light on which has led me to a steering angle sensor fault. I have changed the sensor and the squib but the air gap i can see between them is excessive and I am unable to see how to rectify this. Can anyone assist?

I'm not familiar with an A but is it a 168 or 169 car (which MY?). The steering angle sensor is using photoelectric sensors and a gap clock spring contact and steering angle sensor parts should be natural, as long as the blades reach to block the light.

Or do you mean the contact springs for the airbag/horn? But that should not be ABS/BAS/ESP related?

Did you remember to normalise the sensor after repair work?
