if you have a leak from the back of the rack your sector shaft seal is defective. to replace it you need to remove the rack and do it on the bench.remove the locking nut and pull the seal from inside.if you are a rooky replace the rack with a rebuild one. good luck.

You can change the seal, but the new one will most likely leak soon after, the seal starts leaking because of problems in the rack from wear, I would try it but if it leaks soon after replace the rack, they are cheap rebuilt.

jack it up put it on jack stands / shake it make sure it's safe . remove tie rod end nuts and split them apart by using a splitter , do both sides .helps if the tires are removed, then unbolt the hoses from either the pump or rack then there's only a couple of bolts and it's out /ready to reverse and put in a new 1. then you may need to bleed the steering system again by turning wheel back and forth to work out air . good luck.
