Hi Guys - Im new to this forum - this is my first post !
The problem i have is this: I have a N reg 1996 Mondeo - in January of this year the high pressure hose for the power steering ruptured and needed replacing. since then, i have noticed a small leak on coming from the front left wheel. recently that leak has become worse. Over the last week i have noticed that when i turn my wheel there is a 'screeching' noise coming from the steering - my power steering fluid thingy was completely empty- so i topped it up. in the last 7 days i have had to put over 1ltr of power steering fluid into the car - the fluid appears to be leaking quite badly - looking under the car it looks like it is coming from the track rods (please see pic attached)!
any suggestions on what this could be? is it expensive to repair?
The leak is from the rack gator, which shows you have an internal leak from the rack which is by-passing the gator, if you can pull it back and look closer would be an advanatge. You can buy the tie rods but looks more like a rack job.
