100HP EPS Steering column.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me whether the column for the 100hp has the same part number as the other 169ís? I was under the impression they were different, but I notice Shop4Parts lists all models as having the same number.

Thanks.

Re: 100HP EPS Steering column.

What's important is the colour of the cableloom. I think all non ESP cars have the same sensor/column wether they are 100Hp or 1.2/1.1.

Re: 100HP EPS Steering column.

A remanufactured column will cost you about £200 service exchange. The torque sensors are much less cost but you will need to read the How To threads on the subjects.

This company have good reviews.

WPS are another supplier this is low cost but may be just the torque sensor. Phone call them all to discuss.

Re: 100HP EPS Steering column.

Canít really work it out, Iíve bought one from Shop4Parts which theyíve assured me is the right one, but the part number also says itís for the 1.1 and 1.2. I wouldnít have thought any more about it, but itís the second one Iíve had to buy. The first one I got wasnít right, when I pressed the sport button the steering became lighter. The guy at Western Power Steering (who supplied it) said it was because it wasnít for the 100 and then reconditioned my original column. I just donít want to have to change it twice again.

Re: 100HP EPS Steering column.

Why not ask the guy at Western Power Steering to tell us the difference between 100HP steering and a plain vanilla Panda. Pretty much everyone here thought there were all the same. By the looks of it that's not the case.

Re: 100HP EPS Steering column.

Just to answer my own question (and just in case anyone else in the future is considering buying one), they are different. I now have City steering when I press the Sport button. On the plus side, I quite like it.

Can you feed that back to S4P so they can update their information. Generally they are really good at knowing the important details like this.
