    hey guys,

    i own a series 3 vs ute 3.8L, last night i was driving on the highway and smoke started coming from the inginiton barrel, and out of the boss kit on the steering wheel, also the indicators started goin off by themselves and are know both constantly on, and also i assume if i start it it will smoke again, as i tried again today and it did, also the indicator stalk is like stuck, u cant move it much. i assume it would be a wiring issue, any help would be greatly apprecoated.

    cheers

    Pull it apart mate. Sounds like something has fried. Disconnect battery first though.

    I would say you will see what has been damaged.

    if your talking about the shroud screws they are plastic and will come out if you use a blade screwy to wedge them out while you are undoing them with a phillips

    no, its the part under the actual steering colum with the height adjustment lever, there is 5 screws that hold it on, got 4 out but one wont budge and is worn on its top.
