Just had my rack replaced, if it's coming from the bellows it'll be another rack you need. Labour wise it's 4 hours mine took 5 as all the bolts were seized. Subframe has to come off.

Not sure which fluid is used in 407 if it is red ATF maybe worth a shot of Wynns automatic and power steering stop leaks it worked on my old cavalier rack.

Other than that a second hand rack is the cheapest option

Hi, 407 uses, and i stand to be corrected, Peugeot Fluide DA, its the recommended fluid available from pug parts dept. It's brown, I dont have any in formation on alternatives.
