Steering lock not working?
I have recently noticed a new steering related issue on my 147. When stationary i used to activate the steering lock if i was in a dodgy area or if i wanted to jack the car up. Now when i try i feel "resistance" but the steering lock doesn't seem to activate. also if i roll the wheel side to side (approx 20 degrees) i can also hear a knock from the rack area).
I don't turn the wheel too fast as i am afraid i might brake something in the steering column.
I know the passenger Track rod end balljoint has some play but the other track rods are fine. It just passed an MOT infact. Could the lock issue be caused by the same balljoint?
