Mazda 6 electric power steering faults
Wednesday, 12 September 2018 | Admin
Mazda 6 models 2007-2012 called the GH series uses an all electric power steering rack.
The rack has a torque sensor contained within it and a motor integrated into the rack body.
The control ecu for the power steering is separate to the rack.
The Mazda 6 electric power steering rack can suffer from a common fault whereby the torque sensor goes out of balance, the result is usually the power steering is light in one direction and heavy in the opposite direction, this fault can become dangerous with the car wanting to steer in one direction on its own.
The only way to permanently cure this fault is to replace the steering rack with one of our reconditioned racks.
We have developed a successful rebuild procedure for the steering rack that cures this fault as well as other faults within the Mazda 6 steering rack.
