Rack rebuild?

2011 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  alfissimo
Anyone have experience rebuilding a rack on a t1 vr6, or even know if it's possible?
I blew something to do with my power steering, and I'm not sure what I blew yet. But I'm trying to price everything and see what my options are to fix it, once I figure out what it is that I blew.

I had a rack problem on another car which, after a bit of an argument too long to tell here, was replaced under warranty in the end.

However, whilst there was some doubt about who was going to pay I discovered there are specialist shops who rebuild racks pretty economically.

Ovr the years on here I don't recall anyone doing a DIY so perhaps Google for local rack rebuilders (keep the Safe search mode on though!).
$900 is cheap.

Mine was nigh on the equivalent of $2,000 and was being replaced for the second time in 30,000 miles (hence the argey-bargey with the warranty company and the dealer!).
