Steering rack replacement ?

It is very possible that the steering rack on my '99 166 TS needs to be replaced as it spectacularly dumped it's fluid and came to a crunching halt. Tried pouring in more fluid and it ran straight through. Could be that one of the hoses has become disconnected or has perished. My god, the wheel was hard to turn

Has anyone carried out this job and how easy/difficult is it? Also, anyone know if the sterring rack on the 66 is the same one as the 156

Re: Steering rack replacement ?

If one of the pipes as burst why would you want to spend five times more replacing te steering rack rather than just the pipe?

Re: Steering rack replacement ?

I had this problem on mine, simply blew the end of the rubber pipe off the metal pipework. One new jubilee clip and 5 min work by the AA man to put it back on. My only Alfa breakdown, but it did let go when I had reached my holiday destination and was parking up. Just meant the wife and kids had to unpack while I tried to look busy under the bonnet

I hope you are as lucky.
