Exchange with £500 cashback for your old rack, so not too bad?

If there's any damage to the rack bar or the pinion, they won't touch it

Out of interest, are pinions/rack bars available, or does damage to them mean a new rack?

I remember seeing a new pinion for sale a few years ago, but there are definitely no new rack bars

Nor any torsion bars. My original rack needs a new pinion however the pinion is made up of two parts.

The lack of an option for a new rack could be a real problem for our cars moving forwards. Would there be enough interest from owners / specialists in commissioning a replacement rack from the likes of

Whilst a new bespoke rack would be the best option I think adapting an existing rack is the better option.

Cerbs, Chims and Griff all use that same PAS racks, certain parts are available, some bit definitely not. Perhaps the parts that aren't available to get them made.

I must be one of the few people in the car driving world that likes an electric rack, I'd happily whack one on if it fitted.

I'll consider myself fortunate that mine is still not bad at all considering.

There are Electric Racks, and Electric Hydraulic Pumps

The electric rack in my Smart Roadster is OK, but I can't claim to have really bonded with it, however that is 20 year old plus technology
