Question about Mercedes-Benz ML320
Posted by Anonymous on
One thing to consider is the fact that this is a very precise repair. If anything is nicked or scraped during the install, this WILL leak again. The rack does need to be removed to accomplish this repair. Trying to find someone with the technical knowledge to do this is more of a challenge. It is more cost effective to get another "rack" and do the R&R and alignment. Try giving Silverstar Auto Recycling a call in Fresno, CA.. I have done professional business with them several times and have always gotten the best. 1-800 307-7300. They specialize in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW and VW. Let me know if you need anything else.

No just renew the boot they have perished and need to be changed ,you do not need to remove the rack ,just the track rod end and the locking nut for teh track rod end in fact they are quite east to fit ,count the number of turns to unscrew the track rod end and refit to the smae number of turns ,make sure you write it down though because you will forget ,.To remove the track rod end undo the nut but do not remove ,hit the steering bar on the end with a BIG hanmer and the tradk end will jump up ,then remove the nut and lift it out ,undo the locking nut first though on the end of the trackrod end as it can be a bit tight ,use plenty of engine oil on the track rod end threads a couple of days before you start .it helps ,shouldnt take more than 20 mins a side to do

The rack will be best to come out for repair. problem with trying to rebuild rack is usually the shaft and/or bore is worn causing the leak so my recommdation would be to replace the rack. the only thing the boot is for is to keep dust and grime out,not to hold fluid in so if fluid is leaking out it is a seal leaking around shaft. taking rack apart is not a d.i.y. job there are valves gears need to be timed so to be centered and if you do get it all back together might be fixed might leak worse.
