Am hoping someone can offer some help,

I recently noticed my power steering fluid was getting low and decided to investigate. I jacked it up and took the drivers side wheel off, fluid appears to be leaking from the boot on the steering rack.

1. Do I need to just get a replacement rack or is this type of thing easy to sort?

2. The brooklands manual says I need to take off the front pipe and torsion bars! I have had a look and reckon it will come off without doing those. Unless I'm missing something.

3. Best place to get a rack, I can get a good discount on stuff at GSF but not sure if I can get one there.
It is a 2.5 petrol 5 cylinder and a 2000 model.

Any help on this would be appreciated,

Cheers

there is an addative you can buy to add to your ps fluid,has worked for others in the past. you can get the rack off without dropping the subframe,but you need to take the steering arms off first to allow it to go to one side then the other to get it out

I'm happy to try the additive mentioned, good place to get it from or name?

Yeah I thought it would slide out if I disconnected the steering arms.

Cheers for the help
