Steering Rack Boot - Steering Boot
Power Steering Rack and Boots
If you’re inspecting your vehicle and happen to see a drip, it is never a good sign, especially if it’s coming from the power steering rack. The power steering rack operates something like a hydraulic piston. When you turn the steering wheel, fluid is pushed under pressure to help you move the wheels.
In many cases, the reason the seals wear is replaced is because the boots have become torn. The surfaces inside are very highly machined and do not tolerate dirt and grime well. If you see that the steering rack boots are ripped, replace them right away, as any dirt inside will shorten rack life.
When you turn the steering wheel, fluid is pushed under pressure to help you move the wheels. The rack has two high-pressure seals in it. One is set for the right side, and another is set for the left. Oil should never leak past these seals; if it does it means the oil seals are worn out and the rack should be rebuilt or replaced.
