power steering leak

Hi guys,

Ok basically, I noticed my powersteering fluid leaking onto the top of the engine, I replaced the rubber seals, that didn't work, I brought a new reservoir, that didn't work, I romeved the reservoid, drained all the fluid, replaced all the bolts etc, still leaks. The garage I took the car too told me the pump was knackered? Thing is the power steering works fine for about 24 hours once I've topped it up, but then I go out to it in the morning and its leaked everywhere again? Could the pump be at fault? Much help would be appreciated.

Regards Gareth

Re: power steering leak

Hi Guys, How do i remove it? I have removed the alternator, rad fans to give me more room, ive even taken the reservoir off to try to get it off but im baffled? Mine is a 1994 import. Looks like a fairly standard bracket? Do i need to remove the bracket with the pump attached? Do i need to remove the belt wheel to get at the two bolts holding the pump to the bracket? Help please ;-) Gareth
