just replaced the power steering pump, the renewed pressure seems to have blown a gasket on the right side of the rack and pinion. It appears that I need to change the complete R&P, can anyone provide some guidance as to how easy/difficult it is to replace by a do-it-yourself home mechanic?


If you Replace the Rack be sure to get a Remanufactured if you plan to keep the car as most have a Lifetime Warrenty and Used has at best 90 days. Racks are an easy job but do require some patience as you work from both inside the car and under. Without a good jack and stands it’s almost impossible, but can be done.
1. Raise the car and place the jackstands on the FRAME!!! or PADS.
2. Remove the tires and wheels.
3  Drain the Power Steering Fluid and disconnect the lines.
Now you can either do the inside work or continue on the under work.
Inside remove the necessary plastic to reveal the base of the Steering Column. You will see a sheild or rubber boot around the column and the Firewall. Remove to expose the connector joint or “Rag Joint”.  This is held to the Rack inputshaft with 1 bolt thru a U clamp. Disconnect and Seperate. Your done inside.
