Citroen c5 x7 steering rack

Post by michaelfaley »

Hi all,

My Citroen C5 x7 2.0 hdi has occurred a steering rack leak. Having a look through these forums I see it’s a common fault with these cars.
I purchased some new seals and speedi sleeve to repair myself, but unfortunately on removed the rack from the car I noticed a large crack down the side of the rack where to pinion is.
It seems that a new rack is now needed, does anyone have a contact or a website where to purchase a new one?

These are becoming very hard to find refurbished as they are being snapped up as soon as they are available.

You'll need the correct part number (use the 96*.......) number on the label on your picture to make sure it is the same rack as they are different

Also, see my post here regarding steering angles:
