    Default steering rack

    Took my vectra for a service last Monday (6th oct) adviced me my front tyres were near the limit, so on Saturday took it for new tyres, whilst they were tracking it up they pointed out I had oil coming out of the o/s steering rack boot. not very pleased because only had it serviced 5 days early and they never mentioned this. So went back to the garage on Saturday and they said it must have been disurpted when they tacked the steering, They put it on the ramps and said the clip was loose, and they fit a new clip, (this was a tie back must be a new mod by Vauxhall ) and said see how it is for a few days. Well after 3 days they is signs of oil around the end of the boot, is this normal and is the boot just there to stop dirt getting into the rack, i think they should not be any oil at all, if they don`t agree with me is there someone i can contact at Vauxhall.

    there should be NO oil at all..it sounds like they are trying to cover up a perishing end seal on the racks ram..that end boot just houses the trackrod arm joint..
