    Is it the Audi one? I've just been and had a look at mine, and you have to pull the black knob/wheel out and then turn it. The neck should then just fall out and it will be 'primed' ready for refitting next time?

    No, it's a PCT bar.The wheel does pull out slightly but does not turn either way.

    what you may be able to do then is get a full on replacement neck, as if you look up where the neck locates, the ousing should be bolted on.
