    The centre air vent has always been very stiff to move the deflectors from side to side. Last week I was a bit to aggressive with it and the centre horizontal vane broke!!! Even more of a problem, it's my wife's car! How easy is it to get this vent out and replace? Richard

    As the title suggests I want to resolve an annoying glitch. Having read Tim's steering wheel change thread, its seems straight forward enough just to pull it off the splines and move it round one notch. Is it that simple or are things going to start flying out?

    Hi, I lef the car parked for a couple of weeks and when I went back to it, I noticed that the steering wheek wouldn't return to the centre when turning a corner. It was very heavy as if the PAS wasn't working and I had to manually swing it back. Since then, it seems to have improved a little...
