    It has a rubber o-ring in the top of it. It is really easy to change.
    Just pull of the pitman arm.
    the take off the 4 bolts that hold the aluminum cover on.
    Then just grab it and pull the whole sector shaft out.
    The o-ring goes in a groove in the bottom of the cover.

    Check it with a straight edge after you get it out. I've seen warped ones.
