Red face Actuator leaking oil

Im having a bit of a dispute with the guy who sold me a Punto Dynamic 2006 semi auto. The actuator is leaking oil and it needs a new steering shaft. The seller has said I have caused this because I have abused the car and driven it wrong. Is this true do you think? Also can anyone recommend somewhere where I can get theses parts from.

It would be up to the seller to prove you've abused it TBH.

Small Claims Court, perhaps?

For parts, ring Big Mick at eurocarcare in Derby (Google will find).
