Honda Civic Power Steering Rack – Repair & Exchange Service

Honda Civic Power Steering Rack ExchangeThe Honda Civic uses a modern Electric Power Steering (EPS) system which consists of a Power Steering Rack with an electric motor, 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. When trying to identify the issues with a Power Steering Rack, it may also be useful to be aware of issues that can occur with a Power – Steering pump in order to identify whether it is actually the rack that is defective.

Some of the most common problems that we have found with the power steering components on the Honda Civic have been listed below, so this should allow you to diagnose the issues to start with in order to know which parts to replace.

Common Honda Civic Power Steering Pump Failures

  • Leaking / Loss of Oil
  • Whining
  • Heavy Steering (Either Way)
  • Loss of Power (When Idling)
  • Loss of Power (When Idling & Whilst Revving)
