    I rang vauxhall today and they told me the only way was to get underneath and look at the steering rack. Tossers

    How odd! I failed my MOT because of it so I just went straight to vx and asked for one, and he got it straight away

    Mine failed on both on tuesday. Gonna change them myself but not buying from vauxhall. Too expensive. I just rang them to find out which i needed cos the motor factors i rang told me there was a few. I'll try a different dealership tomorrow maybe.

    I don't know how much they are from a factors but with trade club I got mine for £17, What dealership did you try? I don't know why but I seem to think you're from around the lincoln area?

    I was told there were 2 types, I just bought both, used the correct one while fitting and returned the other for a refund, might be worth doing this if you cant find out, but check with the place first to make sure they will refund, should only be about £12 each anyway.
