2006 TSX rack n pinion and ps pump replacement

Hello everyone so I have a 06 TSX recently took it in for service and the dealer is stating that I need to replace the power steering pump along with the rack and pinion. What thrower me off was the price I was quoted for 3,450.00. What would be a good price to pay for this type of service the car has 200k miles and I am the only owner. Also is this something that would cause an issue a year or two down the line and again I am in the same hole? Thanks to all the members on here for your responses.

I'm on a similar boat with you, except I'm wanting to replace it myself. It's a big job that'll have to wait til winters done over here in Canada cause its coming soon.
That's probably about right, its at a dealership so expect them to charge high rates. My OEM steering rack that I was quoted for was about $1650, minus the labour. Will just be doing it myself tho when the times right, my leak isn't too bad but the seal going into the firewall leaks minimally.

Mine is pretty bad going over to a local shop and seeing right now what the cost would be. I have 200k miles so not to certain if I want to invest in a full on oem parts replacement.

Book time for the rack is 3.5 hours and 1.1 for the pump. You can get a lifetime warranty rack on eBay for $150. If you aren't going to do it yourself, I'd buy the parts and bring it to an indy shop to install.

Hey guys, wanted to put this as a new post or in the DIY section but am just not good with computers. I have an 04 tsx 6 speed. My power steering pump is going bad. Now we all know how much a factory Acura pump is( around 700$ ). I just couldnít believe it. So I bought a used oem one and put it on. I drove to the Honda dealership with my old factory Acura ( Honda) pump in hand. I had them bring up a power steering pump for an 04 accord with the 2.4 engine. Low and behold they are IDENTICAL. I have pictures and everything . A Honda master tech had time to come up to service window and take a look at the pumps side by side, he said itís a go. They are the same. NOW, for some reason the part numbers do not interchange. Parts department said they donít always have to interchange. Why is this so awesome that they fit? Because itís oem Honda for 250$!!!!!! Thatís a third of the Acura one( even though itís honda too). If you would like to see pics please get at me , I am trying to figure out how to put them on here. honda part 56100-RAA-A01AM. Thatís the Honda power steering pump that is for the accord. I just figured this is some good info. Have I actually put it on my tsx? Not yet. But the used one I bought is leaking now so you can bet thatís what Iím doing. Thanks for your time and hope this helps. Ok got the pics. Obviously my Acura one is the dirty one and the clean one is the Honda pump. Let me know if you guys have questions. Thanks, Taylor

I ended up getting going to a small shop and using aftermarket parts and a used ps pump. With the high mileage I have now I just want it to reach 350k miles thatís not asking for much. After getting all the work done now Iím stuck with a weird fan noise from the passenger side when the air is blowing. Any ideas on this new issue?

Any follow up to that accord P/S working without any issue?
I'm trying to decide whether to go with a re-seal kit or just buying a new OEM accord one to fit our TSX. I know a lot of parts can interchangeable. I just wanted to make sure when doing such an important part for the car.

How's your aftermarket steering rack holding up? What brand was it?

I just replaced my leaking power steering pump and I think with the new part with fresh seals sprung a new leak on the rack and pinion. I have a slow but decent drip coming from it. Pretty damn pissed right now. Any stop leak oils anybody would recommend for short term fix?
