Differential steering video

Just over every 4 years by the looks of it :) Well worth a reminder though IMHO ;)

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the suggestion, and they have a depot within 10 miles of me; I think I need to let them see the current arrangement before I get a quote.

It's a snazzy detachable swan neck jobbie, with fold away electrics :wink:

Ah....I have that too; but it just stays on the car :roll:
