A rack end is the part of a steering system (rack-and-pinion-steering) that connects a steering rack to the tie rod (track rod/connecting rod) which connects to the wheel.

In a simple steering system, there are four parts: steering rod - rack (this is the one that works with the pinion gear) - rack end - tie rod

How do you remove a 1987 Honda accord lxi rack and pinion?

Just done it-the problem you will have is you will think that their isn't enought room to lower-get the rack out, The answer is to wind the rack left or right depending on left or right hand drive, this moves the rack out of the way of the front subframe-allowing it to drop-clear of the subframe and to the ground. I cannot see any other way to do this. To refit- remove one wheel and enter the rack from the centre outwards and then back on itself. Their is on need to remove or disasemble the rack end shafts to remove the rack or install it, best of luck chris

How do you dismount rack and pinion?

You have not specified a particular make, model or year so I will attempt a generic guide to remove the rack and pinion from a vehicle. First move the boot, if there is one, that covers the connection between the steering column and the rack and pinion. Then remove the attaching bolt, slide the shaft back into the steering column or pull the column out of the way. Next raise the car as necessary and put on stands. Loosen the locking nuts from the tie rod end. Remove the nut holding the tier rod end to the steering arm and use a suitable tool to extract the tie rod end. Unscrew the tie rod end off of the inner tie rod end coming out of the rack and pinion. Count the number of turns so the tier rod end can be put on a replacement rack and pinion in the same relative position Save the lock nut for reuse. Do the same thing on both sides of the vehicle. If the vehicle has power steering remove the hoses, use a drip pan to catch the power steering fluid. Move the hoses out of the way. Next remove the bolts that hold the rack and pinion in place and raise the rack and pinion out of the brackets. Slide the rack and pinion out of the vehicle.

Why is a variable pitch rack and pinion system sometimes used?

its so that when you are turning greater angles, such as parking, the steering will turn much faster as the teeth on the rack decrease in pitch towards each end of the rack. However, the teeth in the centre of the rack increase in pitch, so the steering is not too sensitive whilst driving in a straight line, as this could be dangerous.

Once a Rack starts leaking it's time to replace it. A leaking rack & pinion system is usually caused by worn bushings that beat on the seals. If your Taurus Rack system lasted this long, consider yourself fortunate. Many don't last this long.
