1st Gen Steering Gear Box

<< < (2/2)

pinchel (Rob):
I just gotta figure out what rebuild parts I would need to find out that route. Looks like I would need these maybe:

Steering Gear Input Shaft Seal
Steering Gear Pitman Shaft Seal
Steering Gear Seal Kit

So, after looking at the labor involved, I decided I'm going to order it from RockAuto.

Hmmm, interesting concept. Nice job Nissan.

I know the older Altima and Sentra models were plagued with power steering issues, and my X is leaking PS fluid now..

Has anyone rebuilt this?

pinchel (Rob):
Thinking I might just pour some leak fix in there... lol
