Steering rack leak

While working on my test pipes, I found a leak coming from the top seal of the steering rack where the steering shaft connects to the rack. I've circled where the leak is coming from. Any ideas on what to do?

Pretty rare issue, but you'll have to replace the entire rack.

There is a seal from ZF that goes there. its a 20 x 30 x 5 (inside x outside x height). I replaced with a generic seal that they sell locally and haven't seen the leak from there in more than 15k kms.

Here is a pic of the seal. you will need to remove the to of the solenoid and replace it (10 mins job once you have the rack off)

Looks like this may work
