    Breakers yard is your best bet as it will be on a standard van cab, or if you can get some heat on it and wd40

    Hi Sounds tricky for a new part. Could you carfully strip it, free the moving joints, lubricate and rebuild. Most things sized can be freed with care, unless they have broken.

    Try Coke. I don't mean take some. It's supposed to be evil stuff. That's the drink not the other! I've used it for cleaning metal and it works a treat.:thumb:

    Had the same problem a few years ago with our Pilote A Class Took the whole lot out and (as Rainbow Chasers has suggested ) soaked it all in Diesel, good burnish with a wire brush, and it was as good as new. At that time, I was quoted £127 for the whole works.

    One other thing to watch out for with that set up, where the spindle comes thro the bodywork it some times seizes up in the little "tube" if the M/H is sat for a while, it would be well worthwhile to coat it all in a little copper grease when you put it back together.
