After almost 200000 km, my rack and pinion is leaking slowly. I have to top up the power steering fluid every 10 days or so, to stop the pump from growling. I crawled underneath, and the hoses are fine, and the unit itself is leaking.

A remanufactured one is about $400, and I can buy a seal kit for about $40. Think the seal kit is worth a shot? Has anyone else rebuilt one of these before?

Thanks!

If you have the time to take it out and rebuild it yourself, I'd do it for 10 percent of the rebuilt unit. It's leaking, not not working.

How difficult is it to remove and install the rack?
