    Default Steering Rack Q

    Does anyone know how to re-align the steering rack so that it sits central?

    I know on my mk2 Astra there was a measurement you took off the front of the rack which wold tell you when it is central or not.

    Just want to check mine compaired to the steering wheel position.

    Thanks.

    A local tyre place would able to do that for you. Tell them you want the tracking done and the wheel to sit straight

    hi John thanks, but I want to align the steering rack first, to make sure it's central and then check where this leaves the steering wheel, ie in line or off centre. then I can check the tracking, as too often the brace doesn't hold the steering wheel straight and then the rack doesn't site centrally.
