    confused Steering rack gaitor leak?

    Hey, been noticing issues with my steering so I looked at the old service documents for last Apr and noticed that the steering rack gaitor was indicated leaking and power steering fluid low, no fix was indicated although top up steering fluid was used.

    Just wondering what issues this would cause, and how to / cost to fix?

    Thanks.

    Keep an eye on the fluid level.

    If the fluid is too low, you will loose powersteering (and damage the pump). You do not want that to happen in the middle of a turn.

    The only remedy is to buy a new rack. Cost are about €1000 overhere.
    So just keep filling it up.

    Did that for 150.000km on my old Astra with a leaking pump.

    Hi.

    Check Ebay for spare rack.
    Refurbished for 150 quid.
