You can see the lower part in the left hand pic (this is taken under the car looking up) and the right hand pic has the bulkhead on the left and the steering column going down. You can see the bottom of part #4 and the top of part #3. I think the lower part looks pretty old, but that could just be the 120k of road dirt and UK winters it's had to cope with..

Interesting that the entry to the rack is on the right hand side of the car.. you'd think it'd be on the left..

I see, so now you have to find out if Number 3 is bad or number 1.
