Information - Steering rack boot

Bellows is an asymmetrical elastic one or two layer corrugated metallic sheath, which can stretch, twist, shrink or shift under pressure, force or temperature. Bellows has a specific feature. It cracks in the place of continuous bends. Because of this you hear an unpleasant sound and maybe even the smell of exhaust inside the car. The bellows can not be repaired. It must be replaced.

Bellows can be easily welded in place of the old one, but there are may appear a problem when installing insulation covers. To do this, bend them, cut and weld. Also when welding the new bellows it is important to follow the pipes geometry. So, mark two pieces of the pipe with a marker, before and after the bellows in several places. Then attach the new bellows and carefully measure it to fit the old one the pipe not to shorten or lengthen after welding.

Next, weld the pipe to one side of the bellows, and after matching the marks weld another part. The welded joint must be smooth and firm, otherwise it can crack again in the future. If the bellows in your car is unprotected, then it is contraindicated to ride on the bad road, because the contact of this car part will result in a forced stop and you won’t be able to ride.

What you need to know about steering tie rod dust boot replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Manufacturers don’t specify certain lifetime limits of the steering tie rod dust boot. The component is replaced in case of defects as well as at replacement of the steering rod or its tie rod end. For checking serviceability of the steering tie rod dust boot it is enough to perform its visual inspection. If there are cracks and tears on the component, it should be replaced.

In order to install the steering tie rod dust boot kit you should address to a service station because maintenance of the steering system takes high qualification. Specialists lift the car, fix it with the wheel chocks if necessary and demount the wheel from the side of a defective dust boot. Then the steering wheel is turned to the side opposite to place of breakdown, and then specialists loosen fixations and unscrew the steering rod from the tie rod end. Then the broken-down boot is removed. A new component is installed and assembling is performed in the reverse order. Often adjustment of wheel alignment angles is required after new steering tie rod dust boot installation.
