Anyone know the difference between the steering racks between facelift and prefacelift cars?
The rack on my A4's leaking, and being a TQS has the same rack as used on the S4 and RS4, ending 052HX.
I have a 052D rack from a pre-facelift S4 here, but i'm unsure as to wether they're internally different? The PFL rack has some sort of damper attached, but i can remove that easily enough. Is the damper the only change?
ETKA suggests that different models even within the same age have different racks, but i cant really figure out why that is. IE a 1.8T has a different rack to a V6 diesel which is different to the S4.
I think Bradderz had played about swapping some of the racks around? Did you notice any differences?
