The power is used to operate the power steering pump, which supplies the power needed to operate the steering rack. The pulley is made of steel, with a diameter of 110 mm and a thickness of 13.7 mm.

The applicable classification subheading for the Power Steering Pump Pulley Assembly (Part # 56480-PC1-020) will be 8708.99.8180, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Partsof motor vehicles : Other parts : Other: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other”. The rate of duty will be 2.5%.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Richard Laman at 646-733-3017.
