Default MOT fail steering rack leaking

Need some help please guys, 98 v70 just failed on leaking steering rack o/s, think I may have used the wrong fluid.
my question is how can I tell if this is a TRW rack or SMI ?
PFS have a repair kit for the TRW rack
Also is it possible to replace the seal without removing the rack from the car?

Thanks,
John

I'm not 100% sure, but they both fit, it's just that the end pieces are longer on one model and possibly a different thread, so the track rod ends are different i believe!

Inner track rods are different, that's it.
