Service manual from Kia Tech Info for my Kia Forte 2018 shows "lubricating the steering rack yoke" with a special grease under "replacement" section of steering rack repair information.
I'm putting in a brand new rack from eBay, official Genuine Kia OEM part from a parts seller in New condition.
Do I need to do this for a brand new rack or is the manual just messing with me? (seems like Hyundai/Kia service info likes to do this sometimes, extraneous steps, steps missing, etc).
If it is something I need to do, I definitely don't want to skip it and mess up the install of a brand new steering rack. But wouldn't a brand new rack already have this grease installed?
