    Posted: 24 Apr 2019 at 6:47pm
I've recently had the badly leaking powered steering rack on my E30 318is refurbished, new rubber seals, however it failed the subsequent pressure test so its the mechanicals that are leaking. So has anybody out there got a rack for and E30 318is for sale.

I may appear to be pedantic about the fact that it is an E30 318is as I read that it is possible to fit a Z3 or E36 rack with some additional custom parts to E30s however these articles invariably end up saying it works for all but the 318is where the conversion may rub against the manifold.

Anybody out there done this, can it work?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Steering rack found by Victoria Autoparts on Ebay they were really helpful and appeared to know their stuff despite having some bad reviews which did worry me but all has turned out well.
