I saw steering fluid is leaking from a seal under the boot, which covers the connection point to the shaft that eventually goes to the steering wheel. Do I have to replace the whole rack or can I just replace the seal? If I can just replace the seal, is it easier to take the rack out or can I replace the seal with the rack in?
Thanks

That area is usually not serviceable on a steering rack, at least by the regular consumer. If it's leaking at the top where the intermediate steering shaft attaches, you've more than likely worn out more than just the seal. There are bearings and other non-service parts inside the top 'hat' of the rack.

Your best best is to replace the entire steering rack. You can get re-manufactured units at a fair price.
