i am pretty sure that you can transfer the power steering kit to your car. but the windows, i am not so sure, because if you have to change the door pads, which could be damaged due to the collision, then it might work out very expensive & not worth it, really. consult your mechanic & ascertain what would be the actual costs.

cheers

Thanks for the reply. i know a mechanic who has converted a power window to a manual window in an esteem he has those door pads and motors only 2 sides and the pillar is badly damaged in my fren's car i can use the rest. i was only doubtful about the power steering wether it is a direct bolt on or not.

Even for the power steering.... there are going to be many bolts...
might not be a very simple job.... but then the mechanic would know better..

Take it. The Power steering units will bolt on. Don't forget to remove all the brackets and clamps along with the pump from the engine block.
The power window units will also fit, but make sure you get all the clamps and brackets. What you should ideally do is get both cars in the same place and start the work.
