    Default 205 Rack rattle

    I have fiinally found the cause of my front end clunk, it seems to be the rack and pinion. I needed to grab hold of it via the engine bay before I could feel any play.
    It looks like a nasty job to remove and would probably start the P/S system leaking if disturbed, dry as a bone presently.
    Is there a replacable bush as in the 504? Probably hoping for too much I suppose.
    Any ideas as to how to repair without getting a change over rack?

    I have since discovered that the manual rack has a replaceable bush (thanks to Pugrambo's CDs) but can't find one listed in the power steering section. I guess I'll have to take the end off and have a look!
