I've searched a bit on the vortex and other sites for this, and haven't been able to find a definitive answer. I have a 1997 VR6 gti, and I need a new power steering rack and pump. Would I be able to grab them out of a mk3 2.0 and have it still work? Thanks.:thumbup:

the pump will not work. the rack might, but i would need to know if you have a ZF or TRW rack. usually the ZF rack has extra waffling on the body..

What is a ZF and TRW rack? Are there different stock racks?

Yes. You need to go look at it. Or take a pic and post it up here and I can ID it. ZF and TRW are both OEM, it jsut depends on what your car received ;)

It has the waffle pattern, so it is a ZF.

Alright thanks a bunch. The local pick and pull always has a few 2.0's but I have never seen a VR there. This should save me some $$
