Hey all,

Does anyone have the technical service bulletin # for the recall involving replacing the entire steering column on early Mk.IIIs? My tilt/telescope function is haywire and from my reading on the RR.net main page, I see there was an actual recall effected in 2006 but my local guy at the dealer couldn't find any evidence of it.

Thanks in advance!

This is the text of No: 57/04/05/NAS (Steering - Column Motor Jams During Operation)
The TSB includes photographs but they failed to appear when I pasted the info into this reply. I expect I require a moderators permission to post these but I hope this helps. There have been 13 TSB covering the Steering / Steering Column
