Steering column lock


Recommended Posts

1999 323is:


I've got the wiring done for switch and push button start, but my steering column is still locked. Is there a way to electrically unlock it or an easy way to just remove the entire mechanism? Preferably without pulling the steering wheel.

I read that Bimmerforums thread as well and need to do this soon. Seems straight forward (hopefully).


Peter: how's that VANOS seal going?


Drilling out the steering lock really was easy - took about 10 minutes.


Well... I took the vanos all apart weeks ago. Since then I haven't had time to get it together. I should have time during the holidays.
