02 Steering Column Lock, Dealer issues

Had my 02 Z put in at the dealer for steering column locked up. Told me it would take a day, so far it's been there for a week...

They took off the knee bolster and said it was broken from the previous owners dealership doing the original recall. So I have to find a new knee bolster. The steering wheel is stuck on, so they are going to try heat on Monday with hopes of not damaging the wheel, probably will need a new steering wheel.

My question is have any of you guys ran into similar issues, and does anyone have these parts for a decent price? I really don't want to spend 300 on a knee bolster and I haven't found a steering wheel in good shape

Re: 02 Steering Column Lock, Dealer issues

The steering wheel doesn't need to come off to repair column lock issues. Sounds like your dealer doesn't have a clue. You can find plenty of "how to" videos on line that show how to eliminate the column lock. eBay has plenty of used C5 parts if you need them.

They are installing a block off plate for the lock I believe, I've only found 1 black knee bolster anywhere, which was eBay, I just thought 300+ was a little ridiculous since it wasn't perfect.

Thanks for the reply!
