I didn't had a hard time to take the threaded cap off, but damn it was a hell to put it back!!

And yes, I did put a lot of grease on the pinion/gear and oil everywhere else...

Thiking more about it, I remember now that the rack has started to be hard to move by hand when I reassemble the pinion shaft (so before adding the pre load)... Need to check that...
But today I'm not sure I feel brave enough to go back under the car to take off the rack, quite a small place actually !!!!

Default uploaded images again

sorry for the image links missing. I moved host , forgot to re upload them...

email me [email protected] if you need any help I will do my best.
RE: Elonash tight rack issue, I would definitely remove the pinion, and check everything, once reassembled you should be able to turn it by hand and check the backlash feel too.
