*URGENT* How to break my steering wheel lock / My car almost killed me twice *URGENT*
Well, the short of it is, i need to break/disable my steering wheel lock, because it locked up on me today twice in left hand turns and had there been any oncoming traffic/no place to saftely brake and slow down while still turning left, i would have probably died. So i NEED to know how to do this, because i'm taking the car for new front tires and an alignment tomorrow morning, and then friday night, i'll be driving about 200 miles, and then another 200 miles back on tuesday... and i dont want to die.
car was stolen a yearish ago, and they snatched the steering wheel lock, so now i start my car with a screwdriver (ghetto, i know... but i dont drive it very often) so i realized within the first few days that the steering wheel would lock up on me, but then i found a way around it. If you made sure to lock the wheel before you started the car, it would never lock up on you, so i thought i was okay (yeah i know i was playing with my life there, but whatever.... i've wisened up now) and that was the case for the last few months when i've actually been driving the car, and all the time i was driving it before it was parked while i was at school ( 5 months last year). Today however was different, because i did the normal thing, but it locked up on me once, and i thought maybe it was a fluke, but then it did it again about 2 miles down the road, needless to say, this **** has to stop.
so we shouldnt have the info out there about how to break the steering wheel lock for just anybody to see, so if you're gonna answer the question, PM me the answer PLEASE. Feel free to post in the thread with questions/comments... but i NEED TO KNOW THIS BY TOMORROW.
