Well after my 60k service and my £670 bill the garage have said that there is a small bit of play in my steering rack (but it doesnt need changing yet.)

Any idea's on how much a steering rack is for the mk4 1.8t?

Probably not the rack.. probably an inner track control ball joint....

the golf is unusual that the iiner joints are replaceable... the track control arms are around £50 each and come with new inner and outer balljoints...

Ive fitted a new steering rack.

Done it in an afternoon on my drive way.

Also replaced a track rod for a mate the other day.

Took about 10 minutes to remove and refit after removing the wheel.
