    I searched with a similar problem earlier in the year. In the end I did come across one recommendation from someone who used to work for a restorer; Roger at Unityon 01932 340100 (West Byfleet in SurreyI believe). I did not follow through on the recommendation as I'd already had the tolerances tightened up. Apparently it is a special grease in the Mk1 rack but it can still be obtained from VW.

    Best of luck.

    I have a MK1 rack which has been reconed and is RHD, it came with the car when I bought it. But I'm looking for a LHD one. would anybody know where I could get one then the RHD one can go.

    'Apparently it is a special grease in the Mk1 rack but it can still be obtained from VW.'

    Early racks were filled with oil but you should be able to buy modern rack grease from any decent specialist suspension shop (at least you can here).

    Cheers, Ian
