    Default 306 GTI6 power steering ram

    My power steering ram is leaking fluid and I'm told Peugeot no longer make the part. The Vic wreckers are closed. P504 say no go. Any one have a power steering ram for a GTI6 lying around? The part is different from other 306 models. What's a pug driver to do?

    I'd email French Connection in Melbourne. David replied to me this morning.

    Thanks. I called him but no go...... Car can still be driven, the ram is slowly weeping fluid but long term I need a fix.

    I got through to Ebay UK thru Grey Lovers advice and the seller had a used ram in good condition which he is sending me for under a hundred bucks. When it is installed I will try and find an Australian hydraulic reconditioner and get the original repaired. If I do I will post the details as its only a mater of time before everyones six is off the road with no steering.

    Good idea, it pays to make parts serviceable.

    Think I've bought exhaust manifolds off that Pommy bloke before.

    GTI6 rams can't be reconditioned. They are sealed when made by rolling the cover over the end. Anyone know if there is a possibility of a standard 306 steering ram being converted to GTI6 car?

    I am sure a threaded sleeve can be brazed onto the ram's outer jacket end after the roll-over is turned off. Then you could look at something like a motorbike fork seal or machinery ram seal.

    According to Service Box all power steer N5 racks use the same ram P/N 4011 44.

    Giving your VIN to a dealer a computer search will show the GTI6 ram is a different item and not interchangeable. This from about 4 phone calls.

    I'd be curious as to why, given the chassis is the same apart from some stiffer springs I thought? Surely the stunted turning circle on the GTi6 is achieved via stoppers somewhere and not a completely different ram.

    Then why would eBay seller selling 306 rams tell me they won't work for a GTI6? And why would Peugeot in France make a separate ram and then discontinue it? Someone on Aussiefrogs will know all this.

    Limiting the outward stroke would be the best way to stop the tyre rubbing on the end of the gear box for the GTi-6, however an ordinary 306 ram would probably be OK in David's circumstances, as 1. he has driven GTi-6s for at least 25 years and 2. I can vouch that it will take along time for the tyre to wear through the gearbox cover.

    Does this mean I would have to do five point turns instead of three Robert?

    Maybe turn the wheel to full right lock then place a tape marker at 12 o'clock?
