Hi Jalil. Thanks for contacting us today. It’s very difficult to tell you exactly what service will resolve your problem without completing an inspection ourselves first. If the rack and pinion have been damaged due to an accident or hitting something in the road, it’s quite possible that there is additional damage or that the actual damage is caused by a bracket or other steering system component. With your car being 2016, it’s highly doubtful that it just broke without a serious impact - so you should probably book this service first, to confirm exactly what repairs are needed.
