now that info i do need. but i dont think you will need it. but it will make it easier. (circuits yes)
Having the ability to easily swap the PAS in and out is a bonus!
but which is it? and any info on the kit or what is needed. as i am thinking of adding some UJs to mine to allow an alternative wheel position.
Renault Clio (Phase 2 - 2001 - 2006 ish) The Sport and Cup have hydraulic power steering so have a manual column. The diesel version has an electric column but the mounts are the same.
The mini steering column fits nicely inside the lower half of the Clio column (mine will be pinned and welded).
I just lined it all up, welded some brackets to the dash bar and Bob's just about your uncle. I haven't welded the lower half yet as I want to get the wheel position correct.
For the electric column, there's an ECU and also a controller is needed to simulate the signals that the ECU would receive in the original car (road speed and steering angle I think). I used the EPAS column in my Clio last year (to ditch the hydraulic pump and system) and used a controller from the company that makes the power steering systems for a lot of rally cars (Power Steering Solutions). It's a simple twist knob and works really well! I may simplify in it the mini to just have the EPAS on or off.
I'll try and get some photos next time I see the car.
