XV Steering rack problem

Yorkshire Lady

Recommended Posts

Just realised I posted this in the Legacy Club by mistake!

I own a 2015 XV, mileage 42,000.

Have been told, on dismantling, as the pinion is worn in the steering rack a new rack is needed at a cost of £1,700.00 plus cost of removal and refitting.

Should this occur on a vehicle with such a low genuine mileage?

Wotcha and welcome - That is low mileage for a steering rack, has it been driven with a vibration coming through to the wheel or has it been damaged by impact?

You may be able to save some money by sourcing a used rack

I believe it's a pain of a job to replace.  As above I wonder if it's undergone a massive impact from a pothole or similar but as the garage has said 'worn' it sounds strange.  You might want to take it to another garage for a second opinion. Do you notice the problem or has this failed an MOT?
