Power Steering Leak

I have a leak from the left hand boot of the steering rack.

Iím thinking itís a failed seal. Any info of removing the rack & replacement of the seals would be great.

Thanks

In my case, I replaced the rack with one from a wrecked car. Pelican Parts has seal kits for some older Porsches: https://www.pelicanparts.com/byb-rennbay/c-suspension-steering_c-steering-system_c-steering-racks
I don't think it's the same rack, but it may be worth checking if the seals are compatible.
