Project EP3 Civic Si: Fixing the @$#%! Steering for Good with SHG Motor Works!


We realized that the rack was going to need to come out to change the slider. We could not move the rubber boot between the slider bracket and slider with the rack in the car without cutting it. Here, George removes the bolts holding the rack in. 

The rack did not have the clearance to slide out to the right or left even with the bolts and steering column detached.

Geroge and Howard remove the power assist motor from the rack to make room for it to slide out of the chassis.

With the motor removed, the rack came right out. 

George removes the clip holding the dust boot in place.



  1. Hi Team,

    This is Kushal from Mauritius and i need your help guys.

    Great explanation, i will be doing it on my Honda soon but something is really bothering me.

    I have already removed the steering unit from the car and it was removed while the steering was in center position.

    My query is that how will i be able to move the slider to the end side to get it out so as i can grab it?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.


  2. If you already have the unit out of the car all you would have to do is move the dust boot. Take off the band clamp then move the boot enough to go past the slider to do this install.
