Hi All, for years I’ve been slowly re-building an early Esprit S2 and have often referred to the freely given knowledge shared on this site for guidance; so I thought as my first newbee post, I would

Hi Buddsy - where did you get the second hand steering lock unit - is it the same as on another British car - if so which one

Also wondering how you removed the complete unit - was it in situ? If so the screws are on the top and look difficult to get to with the dash in position

Many thanks Greg

I think I bought it from Lotusbits if I remember.

All was done in situ. Just undo the two I think.

Great Job. Question: What part of the ignition makes the key spring back from crank position? I'm putting my car back together and my key will sit in whatever position I leave it, including crank. 

 

Also, the actual switch unit area where the lock slots into looks to be a different shape than the D shaped shaft of the lock.

I remember the spring being on the electrical switch side of the ignition. The electrics are quite easy to disassemble so should be reasonable to inspect and repair.
