Re the collapsible steering column, I have a basic question.



How does one determine if in fact the column has collapsed.



My steering wheel is able to be pulled forward, toward the driver, about 30mm, does this mean it has collapsed and if so can it be repaired in situ.




i know of a car that does this so id like to know this also

The guy at the Mazda parts counter didn't even know what I was talking about.



And it's a mile better than another suggestion I found; pop rivets.




Did you have to remove the column to replace it??

YES. Remove the steering column. It's pretty easy as I remember.
