Audi A6 Power Steering Problem – Racks and Pumps

Audi A6 Power Steering SpecialistsAudi A6 uses a conventional hydraulic power steering system which consists of a Power Steering Rack, Power Steering Pump and high pressure & low pressure hydraulic pipes which connect them together. The system is linked with a Steering column (shaft) which is what the steering wheel is fixed to at the user-end.

The later Audi A6 (2010 – ) uses the same conventional system apart from the steering rack. The newer Audi A6 has an Electric Power Steering Rack, it still has a hydraulic ram but with a electric motor mounted to it. The Audi A6 Electric Power Steering Rack is a common failure and we’re taking calls daily for this part – where customers are say the steering warning lights appearing on the dash and steering is going heavy.

A common failing part number for the Electric Power Steering rack is 4G0 909 144 H and 4G2 423 055 AH

Below we’ve listed some common problems with the power steering components on the Audi A6 and this should hopefully help you better diagnose any faults you’re experiencing and replace the right parts.
