Default uh oh... steering rack.. please help!

Hello, noob alert!!..

i have a 2002 2.0 hdi 406 rapier estate which just failed mot

the garage says the power steering rack is leaking from a seal..

few q's:

will a saloon rack fit the estate?

could i just fix the seal for less cash? and is it worth the effort? it's only 30- 45 for replacement rack? but then, scrap part, could fail at any point

how much of a b*tch is it to get these things off?.. in terms of hours how long should i expect the garage to charge me for?

i am planning to do it myself but my bad back will restrict how long i can spend on it so may have to spend lots of money i don't have on labour

any help appreciated, this seems to be a very lonely forum so please post if you have any experience with this job, thanks

saloon and estate rack will be the same but some have variable steering and there may be a sensor on the rack if it does you need to buy the same rack !

As for changing it I have no idea I have only ever removed them after engine removal
