    Hello people.
    This fault has come up on my 2001 S3 since having two front tyres fitted. Dout thats linked but not sure.
    Has anybody had this fault?
    The steering wheels doesnt sit straight but hasnt for a while . This fault came up on the car before years ago but cleared once the car had been tracked up with the wheel bang straight...
    Do i need the tracking doing or is it likely to be the sensor?
    Is this the sensor on the steering column?

    Major thread bump, but this has just come up on my A3.

    Fault reader says 'steering angle sensor' not valid.

    Any ideas please?

    Currently ordering one from Nige, should be a worthwhile investment
