Steering intermediate shaft to R&P boot ripped
Had the wonderful chore of replacing the starter last night. While doing that I noticed that the boot that covers the knuckle of the intermediate shaft to rack & pinion was split open.
Not wanting to mess with the steering (and I have a cold...while it is cold outside), I called firestone up to quote the work. They don't have the labor effort in their computer so they couldn't quote me. Guy stated that the joints should be sealed so not a big deal. I'm thinking it is since it was on there in the first place.
anyone else run across this?
