Re: Y10 4wd

If the rack is the same as the 2wd Y10 it is slightly different. Have a look at the front strut, track rod ends on a 2wd Y10 attach to a spur on the strut itself rather than the separate arm that bolts onto the back of the strut on the Panda. This attaches about 3 inches lower down and the rack is mounted correspondingly lower on the bulkhead. To account for the difference Fiat have an extension piece pressed onto what appears to be otherwise a Panda rack where the column attaches. You might be able to adapt a Panda rack to fit using your existing rack but you'll have to destroy it to find out.
I found this out as I had a Y10 rack sitting for years until I went to fit it to a Panda and discovered the difference, but I have a nagging feeling I got shot of it when I moved as I had a decent spare Panda rack anyway I'll have a look.

Re: Y10 4wd

Chees @kolza and @firstcar-Y10. Have posted video to FB as a I couldn't get file to upload here. However still photo attached. Should there be a bush which has disintegrated?.. and yup, the rack does look different to a Panda one given the different mounts on the strut..
