    if the end seal is gone, then you may well need a new rack, depends on how bad the damage is...you don't have to remove all of the subframe, but just let the back end droop down and there should be enough room to withdraw it. Undo the column pinch bolt first.. it's tight but possible...and don't forget to fit new subframe bolts as they are the stretch type..
