Which Power Steering Rack?

Post by IdahoBob » Thu Jun 18, 2020 9:38 pm

2004 XC70
It has a leaky power steering rack, which I want to replace.
There are 2 different racks used on the '04:
> with variable speed assistance
> without variable speed assistance
My guess is that this is not the correct nomenclature; so someone please help with that also.

Here is the US, I'm guessing that the 'WITH variable etc.' is more common.

How can I visually, or otherwise, tell which is in my XC?

Please Advise, Thanks!

Call FCPeuro or IPDusa and give them your vin number. They should be able to tell you the correct one.
