there are a number of places that will do a reconditioned unit for alot less money, they will ask for your old one back though. ive never had any issues with recon parts, the warranty is usually ok too.

all the best

400!? Ouch, that's a lot of money! Like Stef said there's places online that will do you a reconditioned unit for less money, and usually the warranty is good for 12 months at least - you just have to send your old one back because the refurbish this with new seals etc and send it out to someone else, so they have a good source of PAS pumps and racks etc.

I've done a search on eBay and found this [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-KA-2000-1-3-PAS-POWER-STEERING-RACK-/320758690863?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4aaeb5342f"]one[/url].

Also this [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-KA-1-3-8v-2002-POWER-STEERING-RACK-/150609610850?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2311084862"]one[/url].

Please bear in mind those are just examples to show they are out there for a lot less than 400!
