Steering rack for Q4

Post by finalfa » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:25 pm

Hi!
I have a leaking steering rack on my Q4. The leak is from the right hand side. Due to the steering angle sensor, the rack seems to be a pretty rare part to find for sale nowadays. Does anyone have any experience with fixing the Q4 steering rack? (Changing gaskets etc?). If not possible, would anyone have a spare one laying around and would be willing to sell it?' :oops:

Hi there 8)

Both me and Alfan from this forum had positive experience refurbishing our Q4 steering racks with this company: http://www.nagengast.pl/regeneration-en.html

It's a company from Poland, proven worldwide service. And by the way, they can redo Boge shocks also.

They do speak English but if needed you can let me know, I can offer some translation if needed being from Poland also. :)

Please have a look at the forum and search for rack refurbishing in Alfan's or my threads. Here's one: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1135&start=75#p13094

There is also a refurbished rack for sale in the ads section, I was in contact with the seller back when I did mine until I was sure it can be rebuilt, then I did not need to buy a new one anymore: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1858

But the way mine also leaked from side seals so all was replaced and works perfectly fine now.
