those of you that have a RHD 02... are the internal works of the steering box different in the LHD to the RHD box?....

They are a mirror image, I understand.

If you are chasing one, Ireland Eng. had a reconditioned RHD steering box although it was quite awhile ago I saw it.

Looking at the 2002 parts book; the Housing, Worm & mating Steering Shaft are all different (opp hand). It would appear though, that the Bearings, Shims etc are the same.

Martin,

I haven't installed the steering box since my car is still in the paint shop. But I did examined it and it appeared to be a top notch job. I think you can send your old one to ireland eng and have them rebuild it for you. i'd definately get back to you once I install it, see how it goes. Btw, where are you located? Do you drive a RHD car in the US?

I'm currently in Jakarta, Indonesia but also spends lots of time in the Bay Area. Actually I live in OC for a year before moving back here.

Anyway, besides the steering box, RHD and LHD car also don't share the same brake booster, header.
