    Hi distinctivec, the reason I wish to change to a standard rack as I have done this previously with a mazda familia turbo, which included removing the air conditioning system as well as idleups and all associated wiring, as was everything that had nothing to do with the actual running of the engine. I had the engine blue printed to high performnance specs. That car has now been sold and I have a little old 1.3 hyundai which I would like to play around with. I don't need the air conditioning, I don't need the power steering as these only get in the way as far as I'm concerned when it comes to maintaining the engine. I will be working on the performance side at a later date.

I understand your question but cannot see why you want to change to a standard rack as it will be a mission to covert.a suitable generic is not avalible so you wil have to modify.

Check the power steering fluid level and add fluid if it is low. Check to see if the steering rack is leaking. You can check it by removing the tie rod boots to see if fluid comes out. Make sure the belt is tight. If the pump works and no leaks, you may need steering rack replacement.

I'm Changing the boot on steering rack ,Do the whole steering rack comes down ,or can I just change boot


Just remove the track rod end and lock nut, counting the turns on removal, otherwise you will alter the tracking,
Remove and renew gator and refit track rod end with new locking nut.
It is possible an oil leak from the rack seal has been primary cause of gator failure? have you noticed power steering fluid loss?
If so you require an exchange S/rack.
Good Luck!
Let me know your feedback.

Power Steering Gear
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle, allowing the front suspension to hang
    freely.
  2. Remove both front tire and wheel assemblies.
    CAUTION
    Failure to disconnect the intermediate shaft
    from the rack and pinion stub shaft can result in damage to the steering gear
    and/or intermediate shaft. This damage may cause a loss of steering control and
    possibly, personal injury.
    NOTE: The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the
    steering column in the LOCK position before disconnecting the steering column or
    intermediate shaft from the steering gear. Failure to do so will cause the SIR
    coil assembly to become uncentered, which will damage the coil.




  3. If equipped, move the intermediate shaft cover upward, then unfasten the
    intermediate shaft-to-stub shaft pinch bolt.
  4. Using a suitable puller, separate both tie rod ends from the steering
    knuckles.
  5. Position a suitable drain pan under the power steering fluid lines. Remove
    the power steering fluid line retainer, then disconnect the outlet and inlet
    hoses from the steering gear. Allow the fluid to drain, then plug the lines to
    avoid contaminating the system.

  6. Remove the steering gear assembly-to-chassis mounting bolts.
  7. Support the body with suitable jackstands to allow for the lowering of the
    frame.
  8. Loosen the front frame mounting bolts.
  9. Remove the rear frame bolts, then lower the rear of the frame about 3 inches
    (76mm).
    WARNING
    Do not lower the frame too far, or you could
    damage the engine components nearest the cowl.


  10. Remove the steering gear assembly by maneuvering it through the left wheel
    well opening.





    Fig. 4: Power steering gear mounting, with retainer tightening
    sequence and specifications
    89638g51.gif

    To install:

  11. Install the rack and pinion assembly into the vehicle, maneuvering it
    through the left wheel well opening.
  12. Raise the rear of the frame, then install the frame bolts and tighten to 76
    ft. lbs. (103 Nm).
  13. Install the rack and pinion assembly-to-chassis bolts. Tighten the rack
    mounting bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
  14. Remove the jackstands.
  15. Apply Loctite® thread locking kit 1052624, or equivalent thread locking
    compound to the steering gear mounting bolts.
  16. Install the steering gear mounting bolts, and washers, then tighten the
    retainers to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm) in the sequence shown in the accompanying
    figure.
  17. Unplug and attach the power steering gear outlet and inlet hoses, then
    tighten the fittings to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  18. Install the power steering fluid line retainer.
  19. Connect the tie rod ends to the steering knuckles. Tighten the nuts to 35
    ft. lbs. (47 Nm). Install a new cotter pin. Tighten the nut up to an additional
    1?6 turn,
    or to 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) to align the cotter pin slot. Do not loosen the nut to
    install the cotter pin.
  20. Install the intermediate shaft-to-stub shaft pinch bolt and tighten to 35
    ft. lbs. (47 Nm). If equipped, move the intermediate shaft cover upward into
    position.
  21. Install both front tire and wheel assemblies, then carefully lower the
    vehicle.
  22. Refill the power steering pump reservoir, then bleed the power steering
    system and check for leaks.
  23. Take the vehicle to a reputable repair shop and have the front end alignment
    checked and adjusted as necessary.

How do i remove the rack and pinion on a 1996 honda accord lx? how do i get the yoke out of steering column


there is a pinch bolt that holds it in, make sure you straighten the steering wheel first and lock it down with something so it cant move, then remove the pinch bolt and the pressure and discharge lines from the rack there are return lines within the rack that go side to side, you dont need to remove those. Make sure the replacement rack is even when putting back into steering yolk

How do i get the track rod end off my hyundai accent 1998


Unbolt the nyloc nut holding the track rod end to the front wheel hub.Just before the nut is completely off hit the nut down over to free the tapered spindle from the hub. Alternately use a ball jiont splitter.(these tend to split the rubber boot on the track rod end). Then using two pairs of vice grips , put one on the track rod and one on the lock nut on your steering rack. A little heat would help here. Free the locknut the immediately unscrew the track rod end.Lock off the steering rack arm while you do this. It will rotate unless you do this.remove the track rod end. Replace all parts after boot replacement. you will need to excerpt upward pressure on the track rod end when refitting it to the hub. Take care not to wind the track rod end locknut too far as this will effect the wheel alignment. Good Luck
