    Default Vectra C Steering Rack Help

    Hello, can anyone help?? I have a Vectra C 2003 model 2.2 dti 5 door hatch. The power steering fluid is leaking from the drivers side inner gaiter, the steering feels very heavy and I've been told by several garages that I need to replace the steering rack. Would a steering rack fit from a 2.0 dti 53 reg fit??
    Any info would be appreciated..........Mike

    if it's done right , then it's a permanent fix.. oi wouldn't fit an old rack.. fit a new one and it's a permanent repair..

    the car is still worth serious money, so i'd spend out on the new rack (vx do recon exchange one's) and know it won't happen again..

    it's a big job.. got to lower the back of the subframe down really..

    yep, i meant vauxhall main dealers, sorry for not being clear..

    i beleive Duncan paid around £180-£200 to have a rack ( which he supplied ) fitted.. this was a new part thou.. they may well not want to fit 2nd hand parts as they can't tell if the new old part will be a 100% fix..

    Yep, pretty much - I paid £315 for a Vx exchange rack and then £150 for the dealer to fit it.
