Nissan Navara


Nissan Navara D40 Series (9/05 - On) & Nissan Pathfinder R51 Series (4/05 - On)

One of the most common issues with the Power Steering Rack in this range of Nissan vehicles is a build-up of rust on the main rack shaft, inside the rack boots.

This rust on the main shaft can significantly reduce the life of the Power Steering Rack. The build-up of rust on the shaft damages the main rack shaft seals. This will make the steering rack prematurely leak power steering fluid.


Rust is common on the Power Steering Rack shaft on these series of vehicles. This is due to 2 reasons, the first being a lack of lubrication inside the rack boots when the steering rack is manufactured. The second reason is that the rack boots are made out of a hard plastic. This plastic boot can allow a built-up of moisture inside the boot and this moisture will make the shaft rust prematurely. If the vehicle is used off-road this can also increase the risk of rust due to salty or muddy conditions.

The good news is that if you do a bit of preventive maintenance before the rust damages the shaft, this will increase the life of the Power Steering Rack considerably.

At Ultimate Power Steering we have developed a rack boot kit consisting of 2 new Rubber Rack Boots, 4 new Rack Boot Clamps and grease for lubrication. This kit when fitted to the Power Steering Rack reduces the risk of rust and this will increase the life of the Power Steering Rack.


The series of photos below show how to fit the new Rack Boots to a Nissan Navara.

Once the new boots have been installed the vehicle will need to have a wheel-alignment.
