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..

Too much play in the steering wheel. What could be the problem ?


This is a worry for your safety - I think from your description that the ball joint on the steering rack end is coming undone, possibly with a split steering rack rubber boot as well.

Have it seen to ASAP, as this vital part holds your steering together.

Rack and pinion? have play in wheel no sign of leaks new power steering pump installed


Hi Gunny, If your vehicle is fitted with rack and pinion steering also check the rack ends for play. The rack ends are the rods which the tie rod ends screw onto. The other end fits onto the rack of the rack and pinion. To work on those you will need to remove the rubber boots and loosen the locking washer, they can then be loosened with a wrench. If they are worn the play will be evident in the steering. When replacing them also replace the rubber boots. If the boots are worn and road grime and dust enters, you will see leakage from the rack and pinion in the near future. I always thought the Dakota was fitted with a steering box? Regards John

My power steering fluids leaks daily - what needs to be done.


it depends where it is leaking from,if is a hose fitting it might just need tightening up,if it is from the power steering pump it is most likely the front seal behind the pulley & it will have to be replaced, or replace the whole pump, if it is the steering rack it could be the the pinion seal ( where the steering column connects ) at the ends of the rack where the tie rod connects (inside the rubber boots) all these seals can be replaced ,but sometimes it is better to fit reconditioned units, depending how many kilometeres/miles the vehicle has done.....hope this helps....cheers

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

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.
