Thread: Leaking steering rack

  1. #1

    Default Leaking steering rack

    At 22000 miles I had to have the leaking steering rack on my 52 reg Vectra 1.8LS replaced ( by the local Vauxhall dealership.

    Now only 20 months and 6000 miles later, the same dealership has informed me (whilst car was in for attention to the front nearside suspension last week) that the new steering rack is leaking.

    This doesn't seem right to me. Is this steering rack really that unreliable? Is there a design fault? Could the new rack incorrectly installed? Could it be me?

    I know my mileage (which is mainly suburban) is low and doesn't do justice to the a car like this but I need the big boot

    Has anyone else had the same problem. I would welcome any ideas/opinions about what he problem might be with the steering rack from members

    are they saying the end seals are leaking or the banjo unions are leaking?..they shouldn't have failed this soon in any respect..unfortunatly you're now outside the units 12 month warranty so you'd be very lucky to get VX to contribute anything towards it..

    Garage didn't say exactly where leak was from, I'll be sure to ask tomorrow. But as you say, even so....
