I know the Corsa EPS is an assisted column which drives a standard rack, it has three levels of assistance which are based on vehicle speed, there's various solutions around for providing the column with a speed signal varying from a manual dial on the dash to signal converters which can translate vehicle speed from ABS rings etc.

Having a quick look it appears the Yaris one is very similar but I cant seem to find any reference to it being used in a kit or aftermarket boxes that provide the signal so that might be worth investigating further.

Laurence you need to check the length at the tie rod joints is correct or you will end up with bump steer.
