    Default steering rack

    can the seals be renewed on the end of the steering rack where the gaiter meets the rack or do you have to replace the whole rack mine is leaking on the near side thanks

    Often the seals fail for a reason - worn bushes in the rack causing radial movement in the rack and wearing the seal, or a scored/pitted/worn sealing surface on the rack tearing the seal lips.

    Has the car been run with split steering gaiters for any length of time?
