you will need a MULTI SPLINE bit to undo the center nut on the wheel after you have removed the airbag

i have one here [Y]

you can get them from most motor factors or tool trader

sitck the 100 squid in you pocket as it is not worth paying that if you ask me

Try good local motor factors or Toolspot.co.uk for spline bits, I bought a kit form them and it did the job perfectly, must say the service was top notch as well.

You need to make sure the wheel and front wheels are stright before you take the stearing wheel off.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!! when you take the nut off that holds the wheel on, slidr the strering wheel towards you very slowley!!!!!!

you will se a black ring with a peg on it and you need to make sure that this does not move or you will have BIG BIG problems with the ESP as this is the stearing posision sensor

use some sape of some sort just to hold it in place and you should be fine[Y]

Would a 1.4 have ESP?

or would a 1.4 have the black ring sensor if it didnt have esp?
