    Hi all,

    I am looking for a power steering rack, need one from an S3 that is being broken. (Mine is a 2000 APY)

    Can any of you fine folks please let me know if you know of any being broken?

    It is the steering rack I am after.

    (I have already tried fleabay and the susal breakers websites, ta.)

    Thanks in advance...

    i used a angle grinder when i did mine but you need to make sure you dont make to much heat as there is seals and stuff inside you dont want to melt. so it might be better using a hacksaw
