  16. What is missing in my column switches

    Range Rover Classic
    The steering column shroud in my 1992 RRC is loose, as it's missing screws and has a number of cracks and broken attachment points.

    My wife's 2008 RRS steering column adjustment went on the fritz and the mechanic diagnosed the module under the driver's seat as the problem.
