Sounds to me as if your PAS pump is noisy, i'm sure george bandit may help as he has had problems with his power steering.
here i am! just checkin the clip now - brb
definitely comin from the PAS pump. What type u got?
TRW Generation 1 (slim reservoir with ribbed metal housing)
TRW Generation 2 (stubby reservoir with smooth metal housing)
Delphi (angular odd shaped reservoir)
I'm guessing u probs have the Gen 2 model. If its all working correctly just giving strange noises Id recommend draining the fluid and wacking in some fresh green stuff (Vx Part # 93160548 - £6.50/ltr) u gotta use the genuine vx stuff - dont use std ATF fluid!
Unfortunately this noise is usually followed by the pump giving up completely - more so in the known to be faulty TRW Gen 1 models...but the sound may be an indication of this. If worst comes to the worst and u need a new one - let me know and I'll help ya out!
Hopefully a fluid change will help matters.
cheers geordie... i'll check out what i have asap.
the power steering is all working fine, but after a little while it starts doing this squeaking and feels a little "rough" as it squeaks if you get what i mean.
anyway, i'll check!
make sure its topped up - could just be low on fluid. if that dont work then change the fluid. any questions just ask
nee probs - youll be needing some1 to pester this week anyway whilst ur technical advisor is having mountain fun! lol
