      Quite often it is the final axis that is stuck. You need to replace the whole assembly. Happened to me and I did it :)

      Doesn't it? It uses the steering wheel angle to change the lane filtering in bends, i.e. look more to the right or the left when the wheel is slightly off center. It would make sense if it needed a...

      I wouldn't know as I haven't managed to get it up to real speed yet. Darn traffic stopped me at 285 km/h on the Autobahn (177 mph). I have to concur, though; that speed was a non-event.
