    Hi guys,

    Just thought I'd mention that I've had my steering rack replaced under warranty. Symptoms below:

    1. Car had been making odd squeaking noise from the steering column, which was apparently much louder when on the ramp.
    2. There was also a feeling of notchiness from the O/S/F when manouvering at low speed - i.e. around a car park using heavy lock on the steering. I could feel this through the steering wheel and the foot pedals.
    3. Vehicle was prone to over-steer - especially on right handers.

    Honda had originally insisted the dealer merely adjust the rack, replace top/bottom mounts, but the dealer persisted and it was replaced.

    Just thought I'd share in case anyone else is having similar issues.

    @Ichiban do you still have access to the database? I'd like to know what's officially been done on my car if possible?
