    Unlikely but...

    Does anybody have a power steering cooling pipe that I could buy?

    Oh yeah.. for an AEB code engine.

    Cheers.

    Yup, your right, there was a thread on here, people asking how many turns lock to lock it was, and there where two types, one fitted 'normal' spec cars, and one to cars with the sports kit. i remember checking my old 1.9TDI sport which had it, and my 2.8 quat does too.

    there are Sport racks and non sport, versions.

    If your having to change the rack its probably worthwhile trying to get the sport version though, as it provides a lot more feel and it more precise than the other one.
