Default MOT fail through lack of steering lock

Just had me Other car fail its mot through lack of steering lock. Any thoughts on these new rules?. Prior to taking it id read that if you took a krook lock, they treated that as a steering lock, and it couldnt fail. WELL, they were wrong!!!. TBH, i find these new Requirements daft. Steering locks are just belts and braces, and nothing more. Now ive got to find a new ignition barrell lol.

Looks like you're stuck with looking for it - anything after 2001 needs a working, manufacturer fitted steering lock

Yes, its a impose on us by Brussels during the most recent round of updates to the test. Applies to all passenger cars registered since 2001.

While we all on I the steering lock is a joke and wouldn't stop a 3 year old, its a free excuse for insurers not to pay out when the car is stolen because they consider your been 'negligent', a bit like leaving it unlocked.

It is acceptable for the lock to be removed.if replaced with another mobilising device, but : be that a fitted to the , not a crook lock. So one of the devices that locks the gear leaves in reverse would be acceptable.

I used one of the yellow 'autolok' (I think its called that) gizmo's - the one that slides onto the hand brake and around the gear stick.

When someone nicked my car - it was useless. They used a screwdriver to push the hand brake button, it was released, and they went on their merry way.

When I got the car back - the lock was still wrapped around the gear stick.

I suspect that they could have simply stamped on the handbrake to release it.

After 2001 lol???. My little run abouts 17 years old, a 1996 Astra. Only disengauged the current lock, cus i couldnt get the dam thing to unlock at the key one morning, so i poped some metaldite in to hold the pins closed. Personally, i think its down to interpritation of the requirements. Solid little car though. All thats needed a lock, two rubbers for the bottom ball joints (where i had to welly them) A track rod tightening up (where the tyre centre forgot to do it after tracking) and a parking lite bulb. Well chuffed. :-)

hope not,gona have to speak to an mot'er. its not due for 6 months.

When i had the wheel off,there was a long hair around the middle bolt and when i looked around the stalks,it apears the radio connector is attached on with a tie wrap. Seems the wheel has been off before.

is there a way to fix the lock? someone above said its just a belt and a brace?
