    Volvo Amazon - upgrade to power steering?

    asking for a friend (genuinely).. I don't have an amazon and dont know them at all, but a friend has a low mileage cherished example (think <60k miles) but needs power steering. Has anyone on here done this? my first guess would be a Vaux Nova electric steering pump(?) but Ive no ideas about what rack or other paraphernalia he could look at . I would love to put him in touch directly with someone who has done this hands on, or any other useful pointers. Seems he is guite handy mechanically but needs guidance. Thanks as ever, WAF

    Corsa C, this has electric power steering built onto the steering column, some of the rally boys use it in there escorts, cheap and easy upgrade IMHO.
