I have charged the battery, and checked the fuses. Has anyone replaced with a second hand unit? If so, can you guide me please? As in where I would find part number to look for replacement, etc. It would be greatly appreciated.
Surely there must be someone out there has done this...can I just replace the motor on the original steering column, or do I need to replace the who column? I have a good how to for a punt, where they just replace the motor, but unsure how similar they are. Please, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The system is electric so the motor part would be the one to check. On Punto's I think the motor comes with the whole column but the advantage of Stilos is that if you can find one, the parts in a breakers would be fairly reasonable.
Without hydraulics, the biggest faff (apart from finding the right parts) is going to be access to do the swap.
I would do the job with the whole front of the car in the air (stands under the front jacking points) in case you need to shift the front subframe slightly to make space.
