Mk. 3 Steering Rack?

Post  kevin1977 on Wed Oct 11, 2017 5:08 pm

Hi All

Need a new steering rack for my Mk. 3 - do i just order a classic mini rack? Also i think the donor car was a Metro - does this make a difference?

Cheers
Kevin

Also there were different racks for Mk1 and Mk2 (Mk1 seems to be NLA), plus a couple of specials available.

Yes it has failed the MOT. I'm getting a picture of the current rack to try and help ....

Did it fail cos it was leaking, early racks were oil lubricated, later are grease, or have the joints worn, has it got drums or discs?

I am not sure exactly but I am reliably informed by my friend it needs replacing - he MOT'd it and owns the garage so I didn't question him :-)
