IS it possible to retro fit p/s onto a mk2 8v GTI? Is there anything un-obvious that I would need to change on the motor?? anyone ever done it before?
someone correct me if i'm wrong but these are all the parts you need:
power steering rack
hoses and reservoir
additional crankshark pulley
different water pump pulley(can get away with out this with a shorted belt, i think)
and knuckle from rack to column
it's a straight forward bolt on, like was mentioned, way easier with engine out.
when i did it i supported the engine and dropped the subframe and replaced all bushes while i was at it.
