Leaking Power Steering Rack and Pinion Boots
 
Would you fellow '11-'13 WK2 owners take a look at your power steering rack and pinion boots and post if they are leaking?

I was talking to the manager at the local tire/mechanic shop, who owns a '11 WK2 v6 Overland, and he is on his third rack and pinion . He also stated a lot of the WK2 he gets up in the air has leaking boots on the steering rack and pinion.

See link below for TSB 19-006-10 - Fluid Weeping at Rack & Pinion. It applies to 2011 GCs built between May 20 2010 and August 19 2010. Had the rack in my 2011 GCX replaced back in November 2013 - just under the 3 year warranty window. So far - so good.

The TSB doesn't apply my build date is 12/10. Just trying to raise some awareness and get an idea of how many people are having this issue.

Mine was also replaced under warranty, my mechanic found it and I took it to Jeep.

Mine may be leaking also. I have a mid-year, 2011 build. I was under there for another reason last night. The right boot looked oily/greasy. The left side was dry. I need to pull it on ramps this weekend for another issue, so I will check better. Thanks for the info.

In mine it was built up inside that boot with just a little seepage on the outside...

I was just notified from my dealer that I need to replace my Steering Rack ($1500). Needless to say, I am a bit pissed. Car has 41K, is never driven off road and of course out of warranty. I noticed whining noise while taking sharp turns and when cold.

Dealer replaced mine (covered by maxcare) a week ago. It looked like this:
