Steering Lock Warning light

Hi,


My 2007 R56 has the red steering lock warning light on. Whilst the steering lock still works, the dealer has suggested that the solenoid has an issue and "may" not unlock the steering column at some point. It was also suggested that this is an MOT failure.

The quote from the dealer is 700 to replace, so am about to start shopping around. Has anyone had anything similar repaired and at what cost ? Also, could I not disconnected the solenoid lock so it never locks the steering wheel and therefore I never run the risk of it not unlocking ?

Many thanks in advance.

Dominic
