    Default 1960 Citroen ID 19 Steering Rack

    Hello to All,

    I am in the process of replacing the rubber dust covers on the steering rack of my 1960 ID 19. Everything was going well up to trying to remove the ball pin from the rack. I just cannot seem to work out how to separate the pin from the shaft to be able to remove it. I think it is pressed on and I might need to apply some heat? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    With an ID non powered rack you can remove the steering pinion in order to stretch the new rubber around the pinion housing. In this way the rubber can be fitted from each end of the rack tube with out having to remove the central ball pin.
    Just refit the steering pinion after the rubbers are on. When removing the pinion shaft make sure that you mark the position of the index spline of the shaft against the pinion housing of the rack and mark the position of the ball pin against the rack tube so that everything goes back together as it was originally!
