Power steering removal

Hi guys.

Right, Iíve had more than a few problems with my power steering. The motors fine but still very temperamental.

I would like to remove the lot, Iíve read through previous threads and it has been mentioned that maybe the rack could seize ?
I donít wana be changing the steering rack ideally. Has any one removed the power steering and had any issues ?

Any help would be much appreciated

🍻 cheers

No the steering rack won't seize. The ram is bolted onto the steering rack, it's not integral to the rack.

I drove mine on the road for 5 years and it was fine. that was about 55k.

Don't loop the ram, it'll make the steering even heavier. you could remove the ram all together if you want.

Thanks for your reply, thatís the sort of feedback I was hoping for !

Could I ask, what did you use to Ďplugí the holes ?

Iíve been building this car for almost a year now and really donít want to bodge anything.

I didn't, I left mine open! You could use the old pipe ends and crimp them. They'll need to have a small hole to let the air in and out though.

If you can, just whip the ram off the rack then you won't have to worry about it.

Thanks again for your reply.

I have heard the method of crimping the pipes but I wouldn’t like to do this initially incase I want to revert back to PAS.

I’m goin to have a crack at this later hopefully if I can refrain from having a few pint with my dinner.
Do you know if anyone has successfully removed the ram from the rack while It is still on the vehicle ?

Best regards

Not sure if it can be done in place, the rack is only held in place with 3 bolts so you could loosen them it might help.
