1999 mercury sable gs rack and pinion seal


if the leak is coming out the seal behind the tie rod bellows then replace the steering rack as special tools are required to change this and chances are the housing is worn anyways. if its the seal at the input shaft were the steering column connects to the rack then you can change this seal.

Replace front pinion


Are you referring to the rack and pinion steering assembly? If so, repairing or rebuilding this unit requires very specialized tools. Even auto repair shops do not fix these. We simply remove the defective unit and replace it with another good complete unit.
If you are asking how to replace this unit, that also requires special tools to remove the tie rods. You must also be very careful and know what you are doing or you can ruin the clock spring for the driver's side airbag. The shaft for the steering column is "phased" to the shaft on the pinion gear. You must be sure to keep the steering column and the new rack & pinion assembly in phase or you can do more damage to your truck. You will also need to take the truck to a shop for a front end alignment after you are done. If you think that you have the skills to handle this job, I would suggest you watch the videos I've linked. FYI, it will take a skilled mechanic with all the proper tools over 4 hours to do this job.

Seal in the rack and pinion steering on a 2009 dodge caliber is leaking can the seal be replaced if so can you show me a video on how to change it


You need to take this in, the seal might have failed because of a bushing wearing out. It is not something that you can do without special tools and equipment.

Power steering loosing oil


year, make, model, and engine size?

You will likely not have the tools necessary to replace the seals that are leaking. If the seals are leaking than there are likely other components in the rack that are also worn out.

Rack and pinions are typically sold as remanufactured assemblies which typically offer the easiest repair option.

Rack and pinion leaking power steering fluid through boot on right hand side. is this rebuildable or do i have to replace hole thing


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

It is possible to rebuild power steering racks but most mechanics have not done it in years and some require special tools to perform the procedure. Industry standard is to replace the power steering rack assembly. If there is a fluid leak in the boot the rack needs to be replaced.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

The power steering rack is leaking on the drivers side. Can the seal only be replaced while on the car or does the rack need to be removed to be repaired/replaced?


It is done for and needs replacement. That's a seal leak and rebuilding the existing rack is a nightmare. Far more economical to replace it.

1995 volvo 850 power steering leak at the rack is there a seal that might be replaced?


Not without completely reconditioning the steering rack, no.

In practice, it's always far quicker to fit an exchange steering rack. It costs a bit more than DIY but you're up and running faster, don't need to invest in special tools and you get a warranty on the entire unit.

How do i change inner tie rod , do i need a special tool.


i think steering gear has to be removed to get rubber bellows off to access tie rod.

486d579.gif Section 11-02: Steering System, Power 1997 Continental Workshop Manual
DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY Tie Rod and Bellows SPECIAL SERVICE TOOL(S) REQUIRED Description Tool Number Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B
Disassembly
  1. NOTE: Drill out mounting holes in holding fixture with a 9/16 inch drill to allow the power rack and pinion steering gear assembly mounting bolts to fit.

    Mount power rack and pinion steering gear assembly in Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B.
  1. Remove tie rod ends (3A130).
  1. sve~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Use care not to damage bellows. If bellows are damaged, this will allow contamination into the steering gear and cause leakage.
    Remove four clamps retaining bellows to steering gear housing (3548) and front wheel spindle tie rods (3280). Discard clamps if damaged or excessively corroded.
  1. NOTE: Steering gear does not use rivets or roll pins between the inner front wheel spindle tie rod and rack.

    Remove bellows along with power steering gear rack tube (3K762).
  1. Position power rack and pinion steering gear so that several steering gear teeth are exposed. Hold steering gear sector shaft (3575) with an adjustable wrench on end teeth only while loosening ball joint nuts.
Assembly
  1. Expose several steering gear teeth and hold steering gear with adjustable wrench.
  1. Tighten each front wheel spindle tie rod separately to 90-110 Nm (67-81 lb-ft).
  1. Thoroughly clean steering gear and steering gear housing bore of any foreign material. Any abrasive material is extremely harmful to high-pressure oil seals.
  1. Apply Steering Gear Grease C3AZ-19578-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESW-M1C87-A to groove in front wheel spindle tie rod where tie rod bellows clamp to front wheel spindle tie rod and uniformly to inner diameter of tie rod bellows before installation. This allows for toe-in adjustment without twisting tie rod bellows.
  1. Install tie rod bellows and power steering gear rack tube. Make sure power steering gear rack tube is positioned as shown.
