Haha - Now - Don't laugh ......but when I opened the garage for the first time in many years I noticed the wheels were angled towards the drivers side at quite a lock. After some initial gazing at the car and wondering if I dare climbe throught the cobwebs to raise the bonnet I ventured inside. I pulled the handle and heard the release was still working fine. Time was dragging on and I wasn't getting very far - too much time spent reminiscing - but I thought it would be a good idea the straighten the wheels and see if it would move at all. I ventured back inside the cabin, one knee on the passenger seat and the other foot still on the garage floor. Reached over and pulled downwards on the steering wheel to straighten the wheels - no joy - clearly the steering rack was seized. I tried a number of times, but there was no movement at all. After more time spent just looking at the lovely lines of the car I closed the garage door and drove home, contemplating the work that was going to be needed just to move the car from the garage. Lying in bed, not able to sleep and wishing the car was outside my house and not 45 mins away it suddenly dawned on me............ I'd not put the key in the ingnition and released the steering lock............ Cheers Jeff p.s. the handbrake is off and the gearbox has neutral selected - I've double checked - and with the steering lock released the steering wheel moves as it should.
