POWER STEERING RACK, REMOVAL

Post by gambit » Thu Jul 20, 2017 2:10 pm

Hi, I am in the process of removing the steering rack, and I am having trouble extricating it from the space behind the front offside wheel. It is the rod sticking out from the steering box that is preventing it from passing through the gap. Should I remove the rod from out of the steering box, or should I have dropped the subframe tray before I started. And, does he removal of the tray involve anything else other than undoing nuts and bolts. Any help would be much appreciated.

I took the subframe off to do mine, but you might be able to get it out by just lowering the subframe a little on the bolts (with a jack under it just in case)
