Washer Pump fixes "Rack and pinion boot leak" too! LOL

Thanks Wam for pictures. EZ 1 brew job. Used Autozone and it was fine for the price. Clean out your washer jets at windshield with a pin to improve flow. The Driver side jet never squirted that well with either pump.

Just a note that a mechanic doing a state inspection just prior to me noticing a blue puddle on my garage floor from the leaking pump indicated that I had a "seeping rack and pinion boot" and that the boot would need replaced on the passenger side front. Didn't rush into fixing it and 2 days later started having the blue puddle on garage floor from the leaking washer pump. Noticed when looking under car that the washer fluid was leaking right over the rack and pinion boot and dripping off it. HMMMMM...... Don't think I am going to rush into replacing that boot right now as it was just the washer fluid starting to leak and make it look wet.
