    Mark (Vauxfan), drop me a PM if you need any advice with fitting. Have a look at my previous posts on the matter, and beware bleeding the system - it's not as automatic as you may believe.

    thanks brendan, i remember reading it, was a good write up!, you could post a link up for me if you like?. rack looks nearly new and the rods are still the original grey/black colour with no signs of rust!, the only thing i would say is that the inner track rod on 1 side rotates a bit more freely than the other side, but there doesn't appear to be any play or forward / backwards movment. Should i put my complete rods on as they have just passed the mot, even though they appear to be a rusty sort of colour, or leave the ends on the newer rack?

    I can tip you on bleeding, when all fitted you fill the reservoir and crank the engine up very briefly (1-2 seconds). The fluid level should be dropped in the lower half. Top up again. If you clipped the hoses while you were working on the rack, that should be enough. If not, repeat procedure according to the amount of fluid you've lost during exchange.

    Next, you start the engine and slowly turn the wheel lock to lock a few times (car should still be on jack stands). Re-check fluid level. That should be all.
