    sure will do, its quite straight forward. I helped take Hasan's column out so should only take a few hours at most.

    Actually Zak did that completely on his own on my car, much appreciated. The hardest part was of course the removal of the shear bolts, where access is limited even without the seat and steering wheel. I've got the shear bolts in case anyone needs them.

    Re: fitting a non adjustable steering column (how-to)

    Ive got a bit of a problem. Im in the process of going fixed. I have the parts stripped of the polo column but the spline adapter is damaged too much to use it!
    Do I order a polo adapter as I looked at the corrado one and its different? On etka both part numbers for the adapter are the same for adjustable and fixed column?

    I was wondering the same thing when looking at parts? there is both a 45mm and 26mm adaptor in ETKA, which one does the fixed column use?

    the fixed column is exactly the same as the adjustable column !

    Re: fitting a non adjustable steering column (how-to)

    So I should be able to take the adapter off the corrado one and fit it to the polo column? The only thing is it looks different in length? My polo rack is off a 94.
