Steering rack mounting bolts
#1
Hi there from Denmark.

I have removed the hydraulic steering rack from my Berlingo and I either want to replace it or recondition it myself... any thoughts?

I noticed that the one mounting bolt had been cross threaded and was bent so it is now useless and I need to get replacements. Does anyone know the Citroen or Peugeot part numbers for the two bolts and associated nuts and spacers?

Regards,
Marc

Go to http://www.catcar.info and select Citroen, then put your VIN number in or select your model manually. Browse to the section showing the steering rack exploded diagrams and the bolts will be shown along with all other parts. Below will be a list of part numbers associated with the diagram numbers.

Select the number for the bolt, and spacer. Alongside those diagram numbers are the OEM part numbers.

Hmmm. OK, I have the part numbers, but no amount of Googling can find me a company that sells the mounting bolts. Do I have to go to Citroen directly?

If you are lucky and the bolts aren't particularly specific to the rack, then standard high-tensile bolts should be OK.
The head of the existing bolt may have a number that shows tensile strenght - you'll need to match or exceed that. Avoid stainless and if the bolt has a unthreaded section that passes through the rack castings then match that up too. 
If uncertain take the bolt to an engineering/agricultural supplier to get a match. You may not get a matching head as some bolts are fitted by machine during build and have odd shapes.
As far as reconditioning the rack - it may not be easy to source parts unless someone out there sells a kit for your rack, and some assembly may require specific torque/assembly settings.

I wouldn't attempt to rebuild a power steering rack myself even though I am more than happy fully rebuilding cars. When I did a full rolling restoration of my wife's Volvo I had the steering rack serviced by a specialist. All they did was steering racks nothing else. I dropped the rack off with him and had a nosey around his workshop. I felt I was leaving a safety critical item in good hands and it's been fine since.

I know this guy isn't local to you but this is the sort of company I would be looking for where you live.

Sage advice from the guys. High pressure hydraulic steering refurbishment is best left to experts.

The bolts can be obtained from http://www.peugeotcitroendsparts.com - go to their website and use the "contact us" link, send a message with the part number and your contact information. They will respond with the prices plus shipping.

Or just put the part number in the search at the top of their website. Their website is not fancy but they can supply any PSA part, down to the smallest clip or nut. All genuine. I've used them many times.

Many thanks for the advice. For the record, I wouldn't try to recon the hydraulics of the thing... I have ordered some bushings and rubber boots, new pipes (old pipe fittings had been mangled and rounded) and a few other bits, and a new pressure cylinder. The rest of the box looks good actually. The teeth don't look scuffed or damaged, the seals still look fine. I don't detect any play in the box.

I'll have a look at the website you suggest. Because the mounting bolts are safety critical, I would rather get the real deal. They're fine pitch bolts for a reason  Smile

Many thanks
