There IS a steering damper on the 200q20v. Bentley describes its
replacement without disturbing the other steering components on Pg.
48.8a. Pre-replacement testing involves removing the outer anchoring bolt
and cycling the damper's rod through its full stroke. "The rod must move
evenly without jerking."
