When I put my key in the ignition I could turn it but it was very hard and eventually stopped starting.
I took this to my local mechanic who told me the Jeep dealership wanted $750 for the a whole new steering column or something. He said the dealership claims I can't get this part alone but he pointed out bolts on it figuring he could get it off a wrecked jeep but he couldn't find one in the area. (They are old school, they don't even use email there.)
Here's what is broken and here's what it goes in to. Can anyone identify it for me and tell me where to buy one?
