fail. not too bad tho, bit of corrosion both front arches, n/s/f leaky return pipe, o/s steering rack gator split, o/s headlamp aim too high, small hole n/s door sill. couple of hours work. pleased with that. also gave me a good chance to check underneath seems good and solid even around the boot floor.

Thank heavens it wasnt the nearside steering rack then. Be a bastard job otherwise.

done many nearside steering rack gators, i found the Q&H ones as supplied thru gsf will stretch over the ram union with a little lube and a soak in warm water then u only need to loosen the rack to get the ram offf the coupling. will prob do both on the gti as the nearside is looking a little old.
