    confused Steering Rack or just a gaiter?

    Morning Guys,

    The steering gaiter has split on the veccy. I have been informed (not reliably) that its a full rack replacement??? Can't really see this as they do new gaiter kits.

    Just wondering if anyone knows??

    Cheers

    If it's not leaking and there is no slack in the steering then all you need is the gaitor mate

    Although the ball joints are known to fail quickly on the Vectra (even more so if dirt has now made contact with the ball joint). If you're taking the trouble to renew the gaitor I would renew the actual tie rod at the same time. The kits containing everything you need (boot, rod clips grease) are about £30 a side from the dealers.

    I have a couple of brand new gaitors kicking around (mine did the same but replaced the rack as mine was leaking, so didn't need them) If there any use to you drop me a PM with your address and I'll send them to you FOC. They're only gathering dust in my garage!
