Steering lock
« on: 20 September 2021, 18:44 »
Hi All
Im new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I'm currently helping recommission a Mk4 golf GTI with a friend, the car has been standing uncovered in a garden for at least 4 years and has got pretty damp inside not water logged though.

We are doing pretty well but have a problem we cannot fathom, the steering lock is jammed, the key inserts into the lock easily but the key will not turn and for some reason the steering wheel will not free off so cannot be turned or car started, tried various amounts of wiggling and shaking the wheel but it wont shift.
Any ideas? If the answer is to remove the lock assembly is it a difficult job?

Thanks Cliff
