Question about 2005 Nissan Murano
My 2006 nissan streeing rack is leaking
The usual technique is to loosen the toe-in adjustment nuts, then uncouple the steering tie rod ends with a tool like this
then remove the tie rod ends, leaving the toe-in adjustment nuts in the same place on the threads to mark the adjustment position. The rubber bellows can then be cut off each end of the steering rack, and new ones slid along the tie rods and secured. You would then need a wheel alignment.
Note that on some cars the inside of the rubber bellows is not designed to retain the power steering fluid, this being done by a seal further in on the rack itself. If that was the fault, the rack would have to come out.
This job is far better done on a hoist, so you may want to take it to a repair shop.
