    Rack?

    I had my car into the dealers today for a belt change and rollers. They said I have a leak on my rack :shock: , I said how much to fix it, they said it's a 4 and a half hour job and it woud cost £619 :shock: . He then went to see the guy who spotted the leak and said it's not too bad but keep an eye on it :roll: . I also needed brake discs and pads for the front and my changed and the brake fluid changed. So will I get away without replacing my rack? Thanks

    re: Rack?

    It's probably one of the rack boots which has either split or is weeping, probably the later if he says it's not serious. I remember doing one on a Mk2 Astra and it was a doddle but I can't say what the Mk4 would be like as I've never done one. The boot looks like a rubber concertina usually, which stops oil escaping out of the rack, there's one on either end of the rack, they are joined to the trackrod end. Most unlikely you'll require a new rack so long as all the oil don't escape. If its just a weep, keep an eye on it and ignore it if it doesn't get any worse.
