We towed a Mini Cooper 2007 "S" model four down without the key "Bob" in the slot. Previously had read on this site that the steering does not lock so therefore it was not necessary to have the key "Bob" in the slot while in tow. Upon leaving on our trip - the steering column was not locked so we thought all was "okay" -- but upon arrival to our destination the steering column was locked !!
Have others towing this vehicle -- year and model --found it necessary to have the key "Bob" in the slot so the steering column doesn't lock?
