Remove the tie rod ends and slip the old boots off . There will be clips /ties that you will have to remove for this to happen. Slip on the new boots and fasten with the ties provided or use zip ties

Power steering leak


Not if it's the rack and pinion steering gear that is leaking. If those seals are gone, you would need a new or reconditioned rack and pinion. This is not a job for the average do it yourselfer, it is pretty involved.
To check the rack for leaks, you have to get under the car. Don't trust a jack to hold it up-use blocks or jackstands. Behind the engine on a cross mount, the rack will have tie rods coming out each end to the wheels. Peel back the rubber protective boots on the rack gear where the tie rods exit. If the rack is leaking, fluid will be evident under the boots, or maybe on only one end, but if that is your leak, you will need to replace it.

Fix power steering leak


You need to determine where the leak is originating. The possbilities are:

1. Leaking from the power steering pump.
2. Leaking from the high pressure hose at the steering rack
3. Leaking from the return hose at the steering rack
4. Leaking from the steering rack boot(s).

Once you find the leak source, replace that component.

Leaking fluid from right hand rubber boot or steering rack is it just a seal if so are they easy to replace for someone with a mechanical mind


Not sure which car you have, but with the Ford rack steering it is best to replace the assembly instead of a fix. In my experience if you fix one side the other will give way soon. Ether way it is about the same to replace the seal. But yes, it's a somewhat easy fix to replace just the seal.

There is power steering fluid dripping from the passenger side boot covering the rod that connects to the wheel. Could a simple replacement of the boot be the fix, or is there a problem with the main unit...


No, the boot only keeps dust out of the inner tie rod joint--it is not intended to hold back fluid. The rack will have to be rebuilt with new seals. Sorry. :o(

Must add power steering fluid every two days.


Hi

Yes you can replace the steering rack rubber boots OK.

But if you are loosing fluid, it sounds like the internal seals are leaking, allowing the fluid to fill up these boots, and subsequently bursting them, so you will be back to square one.

Better to fit an exchange steering rack !

Good luck !

A FixYa rating would be Nice !......... Thanks.....John.
