    where is the info about doing a fixed column conversion?? can't remember if its a seperate thread or not?

    I seem to recall people saying to use a Polo rack and column, is that still correct? anyone been using that setup for a while yet?

    i just won this on ebay

    iirc i also need that, is that the right one? have bought others but they seem to be the same as the one i have in car already
    Just like a golf................But better!!!

    Wrong one. You need the (now obsolete) fixed height cowling - which has no cut out for the steering column height adjuster...

    Get searching regarding what parts you need - it has been discussed, at length, in many threads including what parts you need and don't, etc

    UJ on the steering column?

    I was hoping the suspension overhaul on the front of mine would sort the slightly vague steering in the dead centre position. But reading the post above it may now not. So could well be a UJ on order soon

    or in our case,there's two ! on an intermediate shaft from column to rack,make sure you have your chassis number if ordering,as there are two sizes !

    KevHaywire put his in a vice,and could just about feel a slight movement.
    I replaced mine when i did the non-adj column swap,it really made a difference on mine,
    think it was about £130 ish,but that was 18 months ago !
