I may not have to swap the rack yet,but i went through a big flood the other day,and the power steering failed half way thru.
Obviously i will check the electrics first,but the rack has been grinding for a while now,so maybe time to do it anyway.

Re: Steering wheel centering

Try this James, i was going to swing the steering wheel to full lock either left or right,which is determined by the rack itself,then lock the steering wheel in that position so it cant turn either way. Then i would undo the tie rods from the rack and remove it. The new rack has no tie rods,so i wou...

Re: Steering wheel centering

Re: New safety recall notice - fuel tank

Thanks Dave, today this dealership completed what i would consider a very routine task on my car for a [fitter] who is trained to do this.

Don't let me forget to ask one of you guys on Thursday, where my towing eyelet goes. I know where the manual says, but it's not obvious to me.
i am sure all will be revealed on thursday, especially if Nigel is attending, ;)
