Some came with it as standard. Bloody expensive to find a power steering rack

you can use a left hand drive one if you lose the spare wheel well ,or you can fit an aftermarket vauxhall corsa one , or buy one converted ready to fit

<---thinks that a type 2 T3 (aka "T25") does not need power steering. The steering on it feels like a feather to me.

It's not as bad as you think, especially when the tyres are inflated correctly. The large steering wheel particularly helps.

My 1300 and mexican beetle is far more difficult to park (with the tyres inflated correctly) than my camper (apart from the width of it, which makes it difficult to park in some car parks).

Hi I have fitted electric power steering to a number of vehicles. If you need to know a little more give me a shout.

I think Tim did the one on my mates T25 white Villa 3 (Mac). It is very good. If I still had a T25 I would get him to do mine.

When you compare he cost of electric & pumped power, It's a no brainer.
