    Smart garage nr Derby

    Hi
    Can anybody recommend a garage close to Derby who knows about these cars? We have an old fortwo passion that has stiff and creaking steering column. Well it doesn't so much creak but makes a sound like it catches on something when the steering wheel is turned sometimes. Steering needs looking at.
    Thanks
    Alan

    Tolsen has posted on this forum about the issue you have and remedies for it. Glean the detail from his posts (check also FQ101 and Evilution), decide which course of action you want to pursue, and take the car and info to any competent garage to get the work done. If the front panel has to be removed (probable) then get the how-to info on that also.
    It's just a car after all.

    Thanks for the info posted pinger. At least I've now got an idea of the cost for steering column etc. I was asking about a garage as there was a recommendation a few yrs ago on here for a small garage who specialised in smarts. I'll take it to a local garage and see if they can investigate.
    Thanks
