Anybody got a steering column or thing for this lying around? I think mine has gone. The steering is just not the same anymore. As you can see, I am not that technically minded when it comes to cars, so some advice would also be great!!

My son took it out the back of the house and lost traction and slid over a metal stake which was 'apparently' hidden in the undergrowth. Now when you drive it, the steering is definately not right. It seems you turn the wheel a lot more than what was to get the same amount of 'actual' turn at the wheels. Not sure if that is an apt description, but 'loose' and 'not right' don't really describe it.

No idea. Maybe I should crawl underneath and have a check. What am I looking for? If I see something bent, I have no idea if it should be straight or not!! I will see if I can find something that looks broken first though, that would probably be a good place to start.

if you have all your bash plates in place then it is a task to damage your steering. were under did it get hit. the only vulnerable parts are the track rod ends or the steering idlers.i will stick up a few pictures for you so you no what i am on about Laughing
