    Does anyone know what the outside Diameter is for the long shaft that goes from the steering box to the steering wheel is ? Also is it solid or hollow ? I recently found a youtube video about adding cheap electric power steering. By using a Saturn Vue electric power steering motor, and a wiring conversion from ebay.
    Looks simple. But does require  cutting, and wiring.
    Go to youtube: and search.. Cheap DIY electric power steering.
    This can be done for a bit over $100.00
    Check it out. There are a few videos. One guy has a Ford Cobra
    Go to Ebay and search..Saturn Vue Ion Chevrolet Equinox-Electric power steering controller box-EPAS
    The sellers name is brunolopesantunes, the guy is from Portugal. The kit he sells on ebay for $64.99 plus $9.99 shipping.

    no intrest, or comments ? I would be interested in trying this, if the A100's steering shaft was made in sections. Instead of the shaft being one complete unit from the gear box to the steering wheel. But I still think that the system can be made to work, on our A100's.

    Thanks for adding the links from people that have done this to their chevy vans. Might become next winter's update project?
    Has anyone made this conversion to their A100's ? any pictures or details would be great.

    Did you ever give this a shot? I'm thinking of doing the same thing to my a100. Seems pretty straightforward.
