Hi All

I need to replace the steering rack on my mk4 R32, and have a 2.8 4motion one in the garage!...question is are they identical?..straight swap or different...I've heard stories that the 2.8 4motion one is longer?..if so could it be modded to fit?...or has anyone got a Mk4 R32 rack for sale?!

any help appreciated!

It will fit. Different rack ratio though and will likely throw errors with your ABS (converting from the stock ratio to R32 ratio does give errors).

 

Stick with an R32 one. Get yours refurb'd or get a new one.

 

I think S3, TT 225 or TT V6 would be the same ratio.

I've got a TT one on my 4motion as its the quickrack, 4motion is just standard.

Messes with my traction control though
