    Haven't changed it myself but had it done a couple of weeks ago by a mechanic. Part was only about €50 and labour of an hour or so. Less expensive than I thought it would be.

    Pretty similar symptoms. Engine was a bit wobbly and you could hear a constant rattle from it. I bought my car 2 years ago and the mechanic told me it needed changing in a couple of months. It lasted another 2 years before it really started acting up. It made very loud sounds when turning full lock too.
