EP3 EPS - Steering Rack Differences
I've recently bought a refurbished steering rack for my EP3 indirectly from a company Hirsche.
I've looked up their part number on the rack provided and it states it is for the 1.6, 1.7 and 1.7 VTEC models.
I phoned them to query this, they have stated there are no difference in the steering racks on the various models of cars.
My query is, is there a difference on the models of EPS racks used on the EP models?
They (the various EP models) do have different OE steering rack part numbers, so this does point to some sort of difference.
As we all know the face-lifted EP3 came with a faster steering rack.
Another possibility is that the EPS systems speed is determined by the ECU?
Does anyone know either way?
