Volkswagen Manual Steering Gear Box Parts
Volkswagen Steering Gearbox
If you are driving a Volkswagen, you are driving a car that has been built with precision. Unfortunately, cars do have to be maintained and wear and tear is unavoidable. Sometimes, you can see the wear and tear, like when you look at the tires. However, there are parts like the steering and suspension that are very important, but only manifest symptoms of trouble after worn parts have deteriorated due to wear and tear. That is why automotive companies like Volkswagen are continuously making improvements in the VW steering and suspension systems to increase strength and durability of components.
In the early years of automotive development, steering was simply a matter of turning a rudder that pivoted the entire front axle. Today, you will find two basic types of steering systems, a standard mechanical or the rack and pinion steering mechanism. The standard can be either power-assisted or non-power assisted. Most new vehicles are fitted with rack and pinion steering that is mostly power-assisted.
The circular motion of the steering wheel results in a linear movement of the front wheels. The VW Manual Steering Gearbox is the combination of the steering gear - the steering rack, the steering rack kit and steering rack bushing - and the VW steering box. The gearbox has the duty of converting the rotational movement of the steering wheel in to a right or left motion of the front wheels, which makes the car change direction easily. When this part does not function, as it should, the steering into right and left will be almost impossible.
New Volkswagen vehicles mostly have power steering. How it works is a small hydraulic pump builds up fluid pressure that helps to turn the front wheels. The fluid lubricates the steering system. When there is a leak of the steering fluid, the steering wheel will steer stiffly. If you feel that your steering is not as effective, look for the presence of black fluid at these areas: the edge of the top cover gasket, the pinion shaft or a leak at the sector shaft that will cause oil to run down beneath the drop arm.
