Awsome! Thanks. By the way. If you need bearings let me know I have this place here in Austin TX. that can get just about any type of bearing. Once I have my rack apart I will let you know which ones are available and how much they are.

Great! Your pictures more or less tell the story. Only one question. Picture 2402. What is this little tube and where did it come from in relation to the rack? Heh all we need to do now is have some one sketch an exploded veiw of the rack and pinion for the super beetle.

An exploded veiw with a pictoral and written step by step would go a long way to helping our VW brothers and sisters in saving a huge amount of time and money. If you consider how hard it is to 1 find a rack in the fist place and 2 have it be in good shape. Plus if you find a good one they want to much for it. Forget rebuilt ones they often want way to much and are often rebuilt badly.

Woo Hoo!! The boot arrived. Going to tear down my rack tomorrow. Going to replace every bearing in the thing and regrease it.
