2006 V70 2.5t power steering rack leaking slowly

Post by Rvolvos » Sun Apr 07, 2019 8:12 pm

The power steering rack of our 2006 V70 is slowly leaking, splash guard wet. I added some UV Dye to power steering fluid and was able to find the source. Looks like it is leaking from the back of the rack where the steel lines are inserted into the rack. Gold color in the attached picture. Not the lines from and to the steering pump.
Went to the dealer and they where able to find the exploded view of a rack listing these o-rings. But the rack in the picture showed screw in type fittings and not the style I have. This was the only thing available to order.
PN 969092& 969093. Are these the right size for all racks? Would like to before pulling it apart.
Thanks!

How many miles?

These leaks are slow leak. I guess you can wait a bit before replacing the pipes.

143 k miles. It was leaking a bit but lately more.
Learned today about the oil pipe kit.

And the o rings only, on the gearbox side 955978
Thanks to Fcpeuro, but they do not sell the parts.
Steering acts a bit erratic too during sharp corners. Was thinking maybe due to the leak pressure loss.

Yes complete pipe kit with all 4 O-rings.
O-rings on side (screw-in side) are not available for purchase. Will let you know after arrival of the kit.
Thanks for the link! I hope I can replace these without removing the rack.

It is not possible to replace these lines without having to remove the sub frame.
There is not enough room to remove the lines. I removed the brace at the bottom and the exhaust rubber mounts for visibility. And replaced only the o-rings on power steering side. Lines where still in good condition.
So far so good.

Good fix. Wonder, were the lines the same as on your car ? Asking because the pic above is listing same numbers for 01-09 while I remember the steering rack to have been different from between 01-03 and 04-up

They appeared to be the same, I think the 01-04 have screw type fittings on both ends.
See in video at 1:04:37 you referred too. He showed the old ps rack.
