Replacing an electric rack-and-pinion power-steering unit is very similar to a conventional hydraulic rack-and-pinion unit. However, there are some additional steps required.
This electronic rack and pinion requires us to perform what’s called a PMI, which also is known as a programmable module installation. This means we’re going to pull the original power-steering control-module configuring information from the original rack and pinion before we remove it, then upload this data to the replacement rack and pinion after installation is complete.
