Whats Inside a Power Steering Rack?

If you’re curious about what’s inside a Honda power steering rack, watch this video. In it, I completely disassemble the power steering rack I took out of my 2012 Honda Odyssey. The reason I replaced the rack was because of a small vibration in the steering wheel when going over bumps. The van was in a collision before I purchased it and I believe the rack was damaged during that incident. Be sure to watch the entire video to see what caused the vibration.

See below for the video about replacing the power steering rack in my 2012 Odyssey.

I hope you find the info helpful and entertaining!
