esl replacement.

Hi Guys.

I am hoping you can help me please.

I had the esl lock in position and would not release so I took the steering column out and undid the splined knuckle joint in the footwell to take it out of the car.

I had the esl repaired and when I have installed the steering column in the car I cannot get the steering column spline into the knuckle joint spline in the footwell, I have removed the bolt from the knuckle joint.

Cheers.
Ian.

Hi Guys.

I have sorted the problem and have wrote below how I fixed it in case any one else has the same problem.

I bought a second hand steering column and lower knuckle joint to see how they go together and they only go together one way.

There are 3 grooves in the column and knuckle joint and they have to match, next time I will mark anything I take off.
