MOT Failure on steering rack leaking.... info please!

My 97 P plate GTV failed MOT due to both sides of the steering rack leaking. Can anyone tell me how easy a job it is to change the rack? I am going to try some leak sealant but if that doesnt work I will have to replace it. I cant find anything using the search function that actually says whether it is an easy job or not.

Also, if I do replace it are there any racks from other alfas / fiats that will fit?

Not good news I'm afraid. Big job so lots of labour, and parts are expensive. Circa 800-900 IIRC. Hope the stop leak works mate!
