Rack was probably f***ed over a year ago when the PAS died! :lol:

I'll just bung a new one in it soon.

Keep an eye on the steering coupling/hardydisk too. They deteriorate quicker without PAS, and a new one only costs J10

I agree! I used to straighten my wheels sometimes after turning the engine off and this caused the coupling to split. :cry:

Coupling from Citroen cost £20.14 inc VAT which was rubber and metal bits already rivetted as an assembly. :D

£10 only buys the rubber bit from GSF and I took that back! :evil:

Ithink you'll find "all 19 diesel estates have power steering."

I'd be quite happy to take it on. if someone would like to deliver it for me :?

This thread had gone off-track to Kitch's 16V being driven with dead power steering. :D
