Skoda Rapid Retrofit

These instructions are from the retrofit conducted on a Skoda Rapid, since these vehicles share a lot of their designs some of these steps will be applicable to other vehicles.

  1. Remove the TripleSquare (XZN) bolt from the U-joint on the rear of the EPS unit

    1. This is located above the brake pedal.

    2. Rotate the steering wheel to expose the bolt

  2. Remove trim from steering wheel (2 T25's(?))

  3. Disconnect electrical connections

  4. Unbolt the two steering column bolts (2 size 13 socket)

  5. Release the steering column adjuster and pull the entire steering wheel forward

    1. It should come free from the rest of the steering column

    2. Ensure you haven't forgotten any connectors

  6. Disconnect the two connectors from the EPS controller

  7. Unscrew the final supporting bolt from the EPS (13mm socket)

  8. Carefully remove the EPS module

    1. If this is being removed with the dash in place pivot the eps out from the opposite side of the controller

    2. You can remove the black tube from the EPS to assist in getting it out, it is held in with 4 8mm sockets.

For reinstallation of the new EPS follow the above instructions in reverse.
