    Is it possible to change the nearside gaiter on a power rack without
    dismantling the rack. I have had a half-hearted attempt and gave up. The
    problem is removing the power ram and getting the gaiter over the mounting

    Not possible to replace with the original Pug part, but I did manage to get
    a generic gaitor, which was made of rubber on. This will stretch over the
    power ram mounting bolt. You will have to cut the ends to fit the diameter
    of the rack. The ram does come off at that end, just slacken the bolt at the
    other end too. You will have to wagggle the steering from one end to the
    other, to find the best clearance on the bodywork.
    Worst bit was getting the tie wraps round the new gaitor in the right place
    to fix it in place. The OEM part sits in a groove.
    My replacement has been on for over a year now.
