Pro longing steering rack life....new fluid?
« on: July 06, 2020, 05:19:53 PM »
Hello all. Just asking if you think its worth me draining my steering rack fluid and replacing it, to try to extend racks life a bit? I don't remember ever recalling a service manual for any car suggesting to do this, but I'm thinking the fluid must lose its quality over time? Cheers

Itís not a bad thing changing the fluid however I donít see it would prolong the life of the rack personally. I would pay more attention to the gators making sure they are still in good condition and preventing the ingress of dirt and water.
