Ok. Probably not the right forum, but the car does have a 2.0, and there is a lot more traffic here.

I'm putting a 2.0 Jetta back together I bought for cheap with a bad head, and one of the things it needs is a steering rack due to a bad leak. While I was searching for everything I needed on rockauto.com, I came across a steering rack seal kit for under $30. Now I've never done anything like this before, but I'm thinking that if it wasn't possible on the DIY level, the parts wouldn't be available for purchase.

Has anyone ever rebuilt a rack themselves or know if its possible? If I could fix this rack for $30 it would be awesome as opposed to spending $200 for a rebuilt one.

IMO, it isn't worth rebuilding, they aren't really meant to be rebuilt. Just my .02

I ordered a new one from a local parts store. Why? Because lifetime warranty is why. haha. It's been about a year now, so far so good.. and I'm not easy on it, by any means.
