My vehicle has a rubber boot over the intermediate shaft, right above where it connects to the rack and pinion steering gear that happens to be ripped, causing problems with turning every day. The problem is that it is very difficult to turn the wheel, almost like the power steering has gone out, but that isn't the case as I have had that checked. I believe it is caused by the torn rubber boot getting caught on or in between the intermediate shaft and something else and restricting movement unless sufficient force on the steering wheel is applied. I have been trying to locate a replacement for this part and no one seems to have one.
