Default steering rack q's

working on an 03 pt cruiser auto non-turbo. need to replace steering rack and have found 3 different racks available. i dont know what the differences are. is their any way to tell which one i have ( there is no numbers that i can see on my steering rack)
if it moves and not supposed to... duct tape!!!
if it dont move and is supposed to... WD-40!!!

I think there are two different racks for the PT, one for an auto trans and one for a manual trans. they have different amounts of movement.

check the parts manual available on this site for your year. Group 19 is steering. I think EDZ is a non-turbo.

I couldn't find anything on this forum or the web for determining if I have a 4 speed auto-trans standard (SBA) or firm feel (SBB) steering. I found a site that advised calling the dealer and providing the VIN for verification.

Called the dealer. Using the last 8 of the VIN, I was told I have the SBA.

If you need the manual, another post list a free download. It's 2051 pages of fun filled facts for a 01-04 .
