Re: Where to fix my 5000S with leaky steering rack.

I had my 84 5000S wagon repaired at a *dealer* for about $550 
in Kansas City in 1991.  They put in a new "1/2 rack" that was sourced 
from the US.  So check around - you should be able to do better than 
those estimates.

At $20 per liter, replacing that hydrolic fluid can get pretty
expensive if you have a significant leak. Has anyone out there found
a cheaper source for that stuff??
