there is a bit of free play in the rack if you move either of the front wheels when jacked up, its not coming from the hub bearings or the track rod ends, and can also hear the fluid moving about if you push/pull the front wheels, sounded like there was water in the gaiters at first, sounds like a pain in the butt job then

Did you check the inner tie rods. They give trouble. The racks themselves are pretty troublefree.
Is there fluid in the gaiters?

Yep, you need a steering rack. No fixing it. The seals are gone in it.

Default fluid

well looked properly tonight its not fluid, it was just a bit damp , it has been standing about for over a year, the freeplay is in the inner ball joints but i cant see how to take them off, there dont seem to be anywhere on the housing part of the ball joint where you could get a spanner on to undo it, any ideas

they're not too tight- stilsons or pipe wrench will do in lieu of the special tool. Try to counterhold the rack end some way, to protect it.
