When I removed Red Bull's steering wheel I noticed that the mark on the column was in the 3 o'clock position. Isn't it meant to be at 12 o'clock? I'd suggest someone (who didn't know what they were doing) has pulled the box and incorrectly re-installed. And although I haven't checked it yet, I suspect the self-cancelling indicators will be all messed up! Am I correct?

Hi Mark, I know it's an old post, but did you ever get down to finding out and, if so, have you adjusted the setting ? I take it that the car is still VOR, needing a bit of work. Regards. Styria

I am sure Mark will move ahead once he sells property and moves ahead with his life. :)

Hi Geoff, I wasn't aware that Mark was selling his property. In fact, I had the distinct impression that this was the place he was going to call home from since when on - if the last three words convey correctly what I am trying to say. Regards Styria

Yes Geoff is correct. I'm just trying to consolidate and get some minor repairs done while my place is on the market. When it sells and I move that's when the bigger stuff will happen...
