One of the most common faults experienced with the Evoque is where the electric motor/ECU on the steering rack breaks free. The initial symptom of this is normally noise as the drive belt runs out of alignment, if this is not corrected it can result in the motor breaking away completely causing a total loss of steering assistance. This usually causes damage to the drive belt and the main bearing.
The Evoque’s steering rack is programmed to the vehicle, this means that any replacement steering rack must be programmed so it is recognised by the onboard ECU before it will function correctly. This programming can only be completed by the vehicle manufacturer, so beware of aftermarket/second-hand products, you may have to pay for expensive programming at your local dealer.
To work around this, we offer our repair and return service. Simply remove the steering rack, package it up securely to ensure it is protected and send it by a carrier to us (we can arrange collection in most cases if needed), we will repair and fully test it, normally within 48 hours, then return it to you ready to be refitted. This ensures compatibility and can save you a considerable amount of money.
