Does anyone have any ideas or will I need to be tow to the BMW dealer?
don,t worry, buddy! Ive got same issue, but ignored it anyway. Not neccessary to replace column. Ive heard of a simple trick, if the fault remains: After dismounting the steering cover, apply kind of spray grease on the mechanical parts of the steering lock, thats the way saving PST 500, I guess!!
