GT jtdm 1.9 power steering pipe leak.
Iv'e got a small dripping leak which turns out to be a pin hole leak from the 'pump to rack' power steering pipe behind the gearbox. I nearly fell over when i rang for the price of a new one, £160 for a bit of pipe!!,(not even main dealer) plus fitting cost of course.
Does any one know if the pipe can be sealed up/taped up in any way?, its only a tiny hole but not sure if its on the high or low pressure side of the system, it's leaking cos its rubbed on the back of the gearbox over time.
For now i need to keep the fluid topped up, what spec/make of fluid does it take????
Ive got some Automatic Transmission fluid in the shed that says its suitable for SOME power steering units, but i dont want to just bang it in,
any help would be appreciated,
