Hey all.
My Vanagon started leaking Power steering fluid out of the drivers(left) side bellows of the rack unit about 3 months ago, and was draining the reservoir from max to min in about 4 or 5 days...
Now it is has progressed to needing to be completely filled every day...
I know it needs to be replaced/repaired...here are a couple questions..
1) can i drive the van for the time being with the power steering pump belt disconnected without risking any further damage, as I was told by a local mechanic?
2) do I need to replace the whole rack, or will one of the "rack seal kits" do the job?
3) finally, anyone has an extra used rack in decent condition they wanna sell?
..Thanks everyone. talk to you soon.
