    By electric steering do you mean the power steering assembly which runs on a motor? Because the 7 gen had the pulley one.

    Yes 7th gen Civic's came with EPS in Japan and other Middle East countries. Its an easy task, I did the EPS conversion on my 7th gen, it took around 2 hours for the whole conversion. It contains the Steering Assembly, Electronic Motor, Torque and Speed Sensors, Wiring and its separate ECU. All you need to do is pull out all the Hydraulic Steering stuff and simply replace it with the new and better Electronic one and wire the ECU with the Engine's ECU and that's it.
    Its far better then the Hydraulic steering system, no fear of power pump failure, no seals or pipe leakage, no oil toppings and most importantly no extra load on engine. However, It won't effect much of your economy. The whole conversion will cost you around 15-16k out from a half-cut.

    Go to the junkyard market (Bilal Gunj), you will find a plenty of EPC units but make it sure you pull out one from a half-cut or if not then make it sure all the unit belongs to the same car because if the ECU, Speed sensor and torque sensors are from different 7th gens, it wont work. not sure about it but sharing my experience, after trying three different units one worked and it was off from a half-cut

    Its much smoother as compared to the hydraulic power steering, no load on the engine, no dimming of the lights when u turn the whole steering.

    If there are no idle dropping issues, the light dimming does not occur.

    Just asking coz some people complain about its heavier hydraulic steering relatively.

    I have 2000 civic's pump installed in my 7th gen. Its supposed to be much robust, a little bit larger in size but it fits with some bending of pipes...

    I personally do not like EPS, its good for 2003-04 city, the car i never drive beyond 80kmph.

    A used power steering pump will cost you around Rs 5000 from Bilal Gunj market in Lahore. If your pump is making humming noise then first check the air entering in to the system from return rubber flexible pipe which will cause bubbles in the oil bottle. If this is not the case then try to replace the supply/outlet rubber flexible pipe, if it is being replaced in past with a poor quality pipe. My car power steering pump was also making noise when I purchased the car from previous owner and then I took it to Bilal Gunj auto market in Lahore and there it was detected that the supply/outlet pipe from PS pump was faulty. So changed it with kabli pipe for only Rs 3000 and noise from PS pump disappeared and making the steering smooth and light. Never change the PS pump without knowing the real cause. PS pumps are very well built and these are not easily get damage until and unless misused very badly. My car PS pump ran without oil for about one hour before I refilled the bottle and replaced the pipe but PS pump survived the oil starvation and it is still working fine.
