Total removing roof racks will be quite costly as the holes left behind need welded shut and then painted to match.

Vt commodore rack boots


Vt commodore steering Rack boots always rip and tear,the racks always tend to leak from the internal seals.
So if this the case with yours I would recommend you just get a reconditioned steering rack and fit it but once the rack is replaced you will also need to do a wheel alignment.
steps to change rack .
1.raise vehicle on hoist
2.remove front wheels
3.remove tie rod end split pins
4.undo tie rod end nuts and inner nuts on rack ends
5.release tie rod end from hub.
6.centralise steering wheel and remove keys from ignition
7.count the number of turns on each side that tie rod come off and write down .
8.undo the 2 metal pipes that go into the rack feed and return lines and make sure u have container under the vehicle to collect old fluid.
9.undo the 13mm nut and bolt that mounts the rack to the steering colum shaft.
10.undo the 2 *19mm bolts and nuts that mount the rack to the crossmember.
11.gentle wiggle the rack and it will come away.
12.follow these steps in reverse when fitting new rack.,make sure you replace the oring seals .
13.you will need to get a wheel alignment done..

I can not take off the hose connection that connects from da stering pump to the bottom of the rack thers no space to remove the screw what can i do


if it cannot be removed due to lack of access then remove it from the other end of the pipe then remove the rack with the pipe attached then refit it to the replacement rack before you refit it ,if difficulty in removing rack with pipe attached then once the rack is free and the other end of the pipe undone then as you turn the rack you can gain access or but a special bent snap on spanner for this sort of work

This is a repair that should not be attempted by a novice! Put the van in the air,remove the front wheels,remove the cotter keys from the tie rod ends and remove the nuts and separate from the spindle,Remove the Power steering lines from the rack and pinion unit,Remove the single bolt that attaches the rack to the steering shaft,Remove the two large steering rack mounting bolts from the engine/transaxle cradle, with support under the engine/transaxle cradle remove the rear mounting bolts slowly lower the cradle slowly to gain access to remove rack assembly and reverse for installation. NOTE: Install new seals on the power steering lines and when removing outer tie rods from the rack count how many turns it takes to remove the end and put it back on the same amount of turns. Refill the system with proper fluid and have the vehicle Front end aligned!!!!!!!!
