    Setting up steering rack mk1 caddy

    Trying to setup my tracking after previous owner fitted new one but just cant seem to get it after googling it found the measurements. Im i right in thinking you dont actually screw the rods all the way onto the rack these should also be set at a certain measurement. Seems like to me that they shouldn't be as if are like mine the rods are then too short am i right. Trying so hard to get it on the road in time for vw show in tynemouth but eveything seems to be taking the piss. Any advice appreciated cheers Richie

    If you're in a real rush you could go to your local motorfactor tomorrow morning and just buy a pair of track rod ends which will come with them
