Power Steering

Recommended Posts

Any hints tips advice appreciated

Recently had MOT on my SF (MY 1999/56,550miles) and had 2 advisories; Play in steering rack inner joints.  Power steering has slight seepage from a component.

Am I right in thinking that the play is on the inner rack shafts?  Do these have a bearing that can wear?

I had a quick look and the only leak I could see was from the large end of the boots. Some one prior to me has tried to stop it by twisting wire round the boot instead of the proper clamps

I can get hold of boots and a seal kit as I was thinking of purchasing a 2nd hand rack, refurbishing it then fit that to my car so that it's a quick turn round

Had a look on ebay for racks. the part number on mine is 34110 FC060.  I can find various racks with the 34110 but with different letters/numbers after that i.e SA020/FC080, the SA is off an SG 2003 model and the FC is off a 2001 model.  If I can find a decent looking rack off an SG will this fit my SF
