Proof that the more different security devices you have the harder it is for thieves, Ford security alone is not enough.

Indeed, anything that makes it more difficult the better

........and proof that stopcocks, diskloks etc can protect a car if they are actually used and not stored in the boot but declared as fitted if the insurance ask..........

Sorry it happened to you.  It's shocking that people will still try even with visible deterrents.  Will you be getting anything else added like immobiliser/alarm?

Maybe the steering wheel was tied to something, car was driven forwards and it levered off?  Bit extreme but wondering why get the engine started and drive it forward a few feet?

At the time the car park was full, I'm thinking they've moved it out of the bay to get more room to really try and bend the stoplock. Instead the steering wheel has bent and then backing plate has snapped off. They left everything, expensive sunglasses and my dashcam that was in the armrest

Hope you get it sorted soon.

Forgot to mention the £2 OBD port cover which may have just added that little bit of frustration and time.hopefully there's no other damage to the steering column and its just a new steering wheel and window

Might also have damaged the clock spring also check the door lock with your manual key just in case they have mullered it internally even though they went through the window.

Next time go with a disclock as they might put the would be thief off more due to more sturdy design and build. The stop lock definitely did its job though !

:unsure: Good job you had it on as it has saved your car.

 

Have seen on Stolen Cars UK a white Golf parked in a car park, a low loader pull up and drags it on to the back of it and drives off.

No car is safe !
