    Morning everyone,
    A friend of mine has just acquired a 2001 S3, the steering is pretty much seized and the rack is flooding fluid out! Does anyone know where we can get hold of a new steering rack or a secondhand one in decent condition?

    I work in the parts trade but none of my suppliers can get one and I doubt his old one will be good enough to be reconditioned. Audi want the best part of £600 and they are on back order till the end of October, they can't even guarantee that they will actually be available then.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have one spare from a 2003 LCR which looks identical to my 2001 S3 rack. I was about to bin in if you want it?
