Hi all, I have a funny vibration coming from my steering when on full lock and most noticeable at low speed when gently braking. The car drives fine and power steering seems perfectly normal all other times but this odd vibration is getting on my nerves.. Any ideas where I should look?? Thanks
Thought i'd put a post up here to reassure people who have this issue in future. My rear offside door had stopped opening from inside or outside and I assumed the actuator was FUBAR. Unfortunately the door was stuck in the closed position so I thought that getting the door card off was going to be a pain. The internet information is a little bit sketchy regarding this but actually it was pretty easy - the trickiest bit was releasing the rear quarter window blind. There's a cut out at the top/rear to access a metal release clip and release the blind (I used a thin Allen key, get underneath the clip and push up). There is loads of door card removal guides online so i won't go into too much detail. Basically remove necessary screws, release as many plastic clips at the edge of the door card as you can and unclip wires then the door panel can be removed with a bit of force (pulling out and upwards). You will probably break a few white plastic clips because you are forcing them upwards rather than straight out so get a few spares off ebay. The horizontal door blind is only attached to the doorcard not the door so will come off with it. I disconnected the battery to disable the door airbag, this may not be necessary but i didn't want to take any chances. It turned out that my exterior door handle cable had snapped and as the childlocks were on the door was stuck shut.
