    Default Steering column issue

    I've got a Corsa Vxr on a 59 plate.
    Had an issue with the steering locking up, and had it diagnosed and the electric steering column/rack is the problem and needs replacing.
    It would be a massive help if I can find out if anybody else has had this issue?
    It's in vauxhall atm and they will be contacting head office to ask if they will give me a contribution as the repair is a largeeee amount of money!
    Cheers people!

    It's an absolute joke if they don't help you out, something as severe as a steering column malfunction especially as your driving can be extremely dangerous. More to the point, Corsa C's had problems with the electronic steering column and was a common fault, this should of been rectified for the D as steering is a huge factor when driving.. obviously not.

    Does your column move about when you get in the car and take the steering wheel lock off?

    Tell me about it, they want £1097 just for the new column! I'm fumingggggg lol, oh really? Maybe I could research into the corsa c issue and use it to help my fight, I have spoke to a legal adviser and they have told me if I can prove its a manufacturing issue I'm within my rights under the sale of goods act!
    Thanks for your help mate

    Oh nooo nothing like that, it's the inside that's gone wrong. 2 sensors are broken but can't just replace the sensors have to replace whole column?
