Hi guys, my power steering rack is busting out fluid from around the drivers side rubber boot. It's left a nice little puddle every where ive stopped so I'm guessing it's leaking quite badly.... I haven't had a look at it yet but is there a seal in there that can be replaced? Or does it mean replacing the whole power steering rack?

just be sure it's not coming out of the rack sensor/pressure switch, they are notorious for failing. Also a lot easier to change.
