Attached is a picture of the driver's side bellows on the rack. It's pissing out a good amount of fluid, so I'm assuming the inner tie rod socket or some other seal is shot. My question is - is this completely indicative of needing to replace the rack? I know the price of the part is substantial, so where would you recommend to get a replacement?
Also, I'm decently mechanically inclined and for what I don't know off hand, I can read the Bentley and find out (along with the DYI for replacing the rack, that I found on here), but is there anything you can recommend to make sure not to f*ck up?
Thanks for the help guys (and girls, if applicable).
Also, it's a '00 VR6 12v Jetta.
