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

........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?

How the hell have they managed to rip the steering wheel off
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?

Some absolute scum out there in this world, protected by "human rights"...
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
and immobiliser, there’s lots to choose from....

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 !

i have same lock on mine- along with upgraded cat 2-1 alarm and immoilbiser upgrade and tracker...thats a lot of damage!! pray that if that happens to mine the alarm etc scares them off. good luck gettin it fixed and dont forget to upgrade secuirty

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 !
