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.

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!
Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.
Any more questions --- reply to firstname.lastname@example.org

A power steering system has a rack,fluid tank with hose to pump,pump,high pressure in hose and a low pressure return hose to tank. I f you say theres no leak at the rack that only leaves those other conponents. I would check the pump its self and the high pressure hose where it leaves the pump. It may also be leaking at the tank, where the hose leaves to the pump because it is only fastend down with clips and they can come loose or the hose can split. hope this helps

Have you ruled out a leaking hose or hose connection? If so, to replace a rack system on most cars is an expensive repair. The labor rate can be from 70-125 an hour depending on the shops rate, then this is calculated to the over-all time they say will take to complete the job, usually 2.5 hours possibly a little longer and the rack system is about $185.00 -200.00 dollars.
