Have you tried changing the nut behind the wheel? That's what the garages always tell me to check first
Exactly what I thought about the burning, could work but also could damage it, maybe with patience and a bit of heat and a flat head screw driver it may work, just might be a pain in the ass.
I don't know what you mean by the nut behind the wheel, the part isn't attached to the car, well, the other one is but the one in my hand on the pic isn't and that's the one I can't get off, once I can get that off I'll do what I did with the other, I've tried turning it both ways for like a few mins, nothing happens, so sad this, had a slight bump, stupid women slammed on her brakes because the lights changed to bloody red yet she slammed them on at orange which personally 99% of the world go threw an orange lol... i smashed behind her, what a shame, need new bonnet, crosshead over the engine, steering wheel fluid box, grille, left and right head lights, good thing is, cost me £195 and just bought it all, it's actually at the place where I bought them, picking them up after work, the rest I can fix but the fluid box I've never changed one, tbh I'm not good with cars but the guy said fitting the bonnet and headlights and crossbar is easy, and it does look it, shame I didn't ask about the fluid box as I didn't have time, just paid him today and I said I'll be back lator for the parts, which he is taking from another car (scrap yard), anyway parts are mint and fit my car from the same car year/model, so lucky this isn't an insurance job.
