Just changed my oil and inspected the undercarriage of my car. I noticed the steering box and 1 of the rubber boots looked wet. Anyone else ever run into this. I will call the dealer cause its still under warranty.

Do you mean the steering rack? Here is a pic of my rack during a Peddar install. I have some dirt/oily stuff around a rubber plug/seal (not sure what it is) on the right side of the rack. Is this what you are referring to? If there is a steering box, I am not sure where it is.

Yes thats it on the plug and on the left rubber boot.

Yeh, the fluid doesn't look right, most likely power steering fluid. Looks like there is some small leak. Sounds like yours is worse if there is power steering fluid on the inner tie rod bellow. If I have a leak it doesn't look too bad. But next time I get an oil change I will ask the dealer for an opinion.
