steering column bearing support piece

Recommended Posts

On a V8 Esprit behind the steering wheel is a thin alloy piece that holds a caged bearing riding on the steering shaft. That same piece clamps the signal stalk switch (L) and wiper stalk switch ® in and bolts to the ignition switch (which lies below it).

I am pretty certain that piece is off an Opel car; however the only recent examples in North America have been the Cadillac Catera and the Pontiac Lemans (FWD). Both differ in construction . . . the Catera's is made of yellow plastic and the Pontiac Lemans' is a two piece design.

Does anyone know of where Lotus gets that part from, or better yet does anyone have a spare?

Once some person tries to break your ignition switch free with a pry bar that thin alloy casting shatters and it isn't easy to repair. Don't ask me why I now know this.
