I have a family friend mechanic, but if I can do it myself without having to get him to come to me at least then I'd be happy, really I just need to get the steering lock off otherwise he's going to have to get hold of a flatbed truck and come to collect the van, I'd rather spend that kinda money on a new gearbox!

Can understand what you mean mate, but of course due to the very nature of the question, it would be against the forum's best interests as a group or individuals to talk you through the process of knocking out the security systems. A bit of time trawling google should give you some information on what you need to do, and if your happy to take a chance, then go for it.

I wouldn't post those on the forum, but if there's someone affiliated to the website itself, a moderator perhaps I would be happy to provide evidence that it is mine, registered to my girlfriend at my home address, etc...

Big question...do I really need a steering lock?
Would it be stupid to break it bearing in mind repair costs/can they be unlocked by a mechanic easily?

Regardless of provision of this information, you have to bear in mind, no support should be offered on this thread... I wouldnt really like to come across a thread that talks you through shattering the barrel and security features of the car. Its just a tutorial for those who are less honest than you or I!

It may be that if a mod replied and advised they were sufficiently pleased with the evidence provided that you could only be supported via PM with management consent.
