Found the steering leak. Seals have blown on the passenger side and there's a knock from the drivers side, which originally I thought was suspension related. And just to make life more difficult, I can't find many for sale on fleabay or elsewhere that would fit.
Anyhow, cut ranting and straight to the argument...
It's got some sort of quick rack fitted to it. Ever since I brought it, it's always had 2.5 turns. I'm on 16" wheels, (2002). I've driven others which are the same 2.5 turns but they were running 17" wheels, (2003) and another had 3 turns but was on 16" wheels, (2000).
So my questions are:
- There 2 versions of the rack for a mk4 Golf v6 4Mo, (excl. r32) - standard and quick lock?
- If I put a standard one on and not a quick rack is that going to fubar my ESP? In the same way that fitting a quick rack in place of a standard one does?
- Are the VW PR numbers interchangeable? Eg: Can I use a QZ5 part if a QZ2 isn't available?
