    Quick Question... Help appreciated PAS rack

    Hi Guys

    I've got a Leaky PAS rack on my SRI Turbo. Im looking at PAS racks on ebay is there any variations of the rack for the mk4 or are they all the same...??

    Is the rack that's on there fixable? it only appears to be a slow leak from the passenger side of the rack around the gaiter.!.

    Could it just be the gaiter that has split much in the same way as a CV boot??? or is the gaiter just a protective cover and the seals themself are within the pump...??

    Help much appreciated

    Hiya
    Firstly there are a few different types of system,
    ie:gen 1 gen 2 and i think another,
    The most common one is gen 2, one can usually tell by the shape of the pump, gen 2 has a slimmer pump housing(plastik)
    Whilst gen 1 system/pump is chubby,
    But i can almost guarantee yours will be gen 2 TRW set up

    secondly i think the seals have gone on yours, you are probably better off simply replacing the complete rack along withe track arms and ends,and maybe even the pump,
    Which i incidently have all, from a 04 mk4 cabby which i broke last year.

    Lastly to remove the pump and rack, one has to drop the subframe for access,
    the job is easy once you know how,
    I completly renewed (great expence)the system and engine on my project vxr engined turbo coupe,and the result was astoundingly good (the pas is brill).

    anyway i hope i've helped a little
    kindest Paula

    Hi Sorry for a late reply



    which one of these is the Gen1 pump and which is the Gen2???

    ive added a link to a photo but it doesn't appear to be working. If some one could a have a quick look at this link it would be appreciated very much.

    presume that it is not just the two pumps that are different and that there must be subtle differences in the rack its self.
