159 Steering rack - how much?

So mine has play in it and the original (wrong) fluid. No point changing it at 78k miles.

If/when it leaks or fails, whats the repair bill likely to be?

I need to budget, and potentially offset that future against a fully maintained £6.5k Audi Avant 2,0 Quatrro I've been offered... I know I know...

I know this may be a bit late to help you but I paid about £500 for a garage near Chippenham to replace my steering rack. They got a new rack for just over £300, the rest was labour. (I also had them fit a new reservoir et al at the same time).

Not too late - but who cares! When it needs doing I'll get it done, but I'm keeping my 159!

Is the play definitely in the rack or is it just the cheap track control arms?

I enquired on this some time ago for my 159 Lusso and it was around £500.00 for a reconditioned rack from Labinjoh in Edinburgh on 0131 3464700

The racks are often too badly corroded inside to be reconditioned which you wont know untill the rack is off the car and at the reconditioners which will leave you stuck...I got my rack from here, all new insides for £340
