About Steering Rack Manuals

The Audimanual steering rack and pinion system consists of two main parts. The first of these is the pinion. This is a toothed, circular “gear” that connects to the steering column of the vehicle. The pinion rests on a linear “gear” known as the rack. When the steering wheel turns it causes the pinion to rotate. This rotation translates to linear movement of the rack.

The ends of the Audimanual steering rack connect to rods, which are known as tie rods. These, in turn, are connected to spindles located on the vehicle’s wheels. When the rack moves from side to side, when prompted by the rotation of the pinion, the wheels are caused to move, thus translating the driver’s operation of the steering wheel to the directional movement of the vehicle.

To keep the mechanism of the Audimanual steering rack in good working order it is essential to keep the ends clean and dry and also to ensure that they are adequately lubricated. This is achieved by encasing the steering rack within a set of rubber boots or gaiters.

If there are any problems with the Audimanual steering rack as a result of wear and tear caused by water or dirt or lack of effective lubrication it is likely to require replacement if the steering system of the vehicle is to be restored.

Audi trivia

  • If you’ve ever looked at an Audi RS and mistaken it for a Porsche, you haven’t gone mad. The car was actually a collaboration with Porsche, and the RS has the distinctive grille and tailgate of the famous sports car.
  • In 1971, Audi reached the landmark that all car manufacturers hope to hit sooner rather than later: the production of their millionth car. By 1976, they reached 2 million!
  • The oldest car race event in the world, the 24hr Le Mans, has been won by Audi an impressive 13 times, most of which were in the classic R8 racer.
  • You might think that crash tests in cars have always been a requirement, but it was Audi that first started doing them. Far from the modern methods used today, Audi engineers simply let their cars roll down hills until they hit something. Spectators used to line up to watch the excitement.
  • Volkswagen owns the Audi brand, after buying it from Daimler-Benz way back in the 1960s.
