Garage have advised that the steering rack on my Signum 2.2dti is leaking into the bellows as they needed to top up the power steering fluid (reservoir under the wing so separate pump). They say that I need a new rack and that the power steering will fail at some indeterminate point - - today? next week? next month?
Repair with a pattern rack is some £500 ish. Does this sound right? They say that the from subframe must be dropped to change the rack. Is this right?
This was an expensive service as the car also needs new pads/discs on the front and rear pads.
