    Hello,

    Does anyone know the genuine part number for a steering rack on a Audi A3 2.0 tdi 2004 or where I can acquire the information from?

    The part number for a rhd vehicle is :- 1K2 423 055 JX. Approx £900 and I think that's an exchange price.

    You will need to check the number against you chassis number because there are a few variations of suffix letters.

    Be warned, the racks have changed generations from 1 to 2 to now 3, these also came with loom changes so check which gen the used 1 is.

    I had a rack replaced in my car (2006), and the "correct" parts that were used were:

    Rack - 1K2 423 055 JX
    Loom - 1K2 971 111 AJ.

    Yeap J is the latest gen 3 & the X is exchange part which is cheaper as they will remanu your old one & gen 3 loom to adapt too your car wiring aswell, afaik all cars now are fitted with gen 3's even warranty & repair work.
