In this video tutorial you are going to see a Skoda Octavia Tour with a failing power steering rack. This steering rack is mounted on 1999-2006 models like the Golf Mk4, Jetta, Bora, Beetle, Skoda Octavia Tour, Fabia, Audi A3, etc.
If you have a failed steering rack, your options are:
– to buy a rebuild steering rack
– to buy a new steering rack
– to buy a used steering rack
You can hear the noise coming from the steering rack when you turn the steering wheel to the right or to the left. If you hear any of these noises when turning your steering wheel they typically indicate a problem with your power steering system. Could be a loose belt, low power steering fluid or a failing steering rack.
The noise that is coming from the steering rack is a sign that you have a problem with steering rack. The sound is very loud and you can feel some strong vibrations coming from the steering wheel. Outside, the noise coming from the steering rack is very loud.
