Power Steering Pump Dying...

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Last month my power steering pump started to make a terrible squealing noise, it has got to a point now where the shame of the noise is getting to me and its time i changed it..

Its exceptionally noisy first thing when its cold, once its warmed up it gets better'ish.. Its definately the pump the fluid is A ok i changed that and there is no air in it for sure.

Has anyone changed theirs or have any idea how much I should be looking to pay? There are used ones on eBay for around £30 - £60 or should I only buy new?

Cheers.

Oli

Lots of good used parts out there to keep the cost of ownership down, i would say go for 2nd hand, as new would require the sale of a kidney or other body parts :winky:

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
