[DML] Re: steering wheel lock



David,
I did spray with WD40. The key now almost gets sucked in because of 
it, but still the lock won't budge. The car is now locked up in the 
garage where the shocks were changed, so I'll try again next monday. 
Ed Uding advised me to disassemble the housing and then hitting the 
lock assembly with a rubber hammer. So I'll probably try that first. 
Unless my D has had some time to think about this all during the 
weekend and decided to release the lock. Sometimes she just likes to 
do these kind of things just so I give her some more attention ...

Joop
