Default Power steering leak 2002 TDI Jetta

Have power steering leak in steering rack. Do they have steering rack replacement seal kits or does the rack require replacement?Would be nice to fix the issue without dropping the subframe.

It's not hard to rebuild them. Yes there are kits for new seals and whatnot. Has to be removed though. That's the hard part. Gata drop the subframe.

Interesting, seems I remember the rack on my old 99.5 was easy, don't recall removing anything but the rack, tie rods, fluid lines. A good rebuild kit may be tough to find, but would be all that's needed. The whole rack is not terribly expensive.

im not 100% on the DIY on these for these cars, i think you dont have to remove the subframe, just drop it down a bit
