An electric power steering rack can cost more than $2,000 to replace depending on the application.
The inner tie rod boot or bellows protects the electric motors and sensors. If the boot has a tear, defect or the clamps are loose, the movement of the rack can cause the opening to ingest water and debris due to the vacuum produced by the movement. If you are inspecting the rack, pay attention to the condition of the rack. This video is sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.
