Help 147 Power Steering Noise

Hello fellow Alfa dudes.

My power steering is making a TERRIBLE groaning noise at rest when the wheel is turned. And it's just started making a 'whirring noise' - the pitch of the noise increases with an increase in engine speed - I think it's probably the pump, as the note of the noise changes when the wheel is turned too. I've checked the fluid level and it's at minimum, so I think it should be ok. Any experience/ideas most gratefully received.

Will I EVER get any trouble-free motoring out of this bl**dy car?!

Ha - should've checked past threads before posting this - even though the reservoir was checked full by an Alfa mechanic, sticking some more fluid in sorted it out - slightly bizzarre! (But cheap)

Re: 147 Power Steering Noise

often those reservoirs need to be topped up higher a bit as they can be on a slant i find - autotrans is usually easy to find though fortunately

Check for leaks around the semi rigid metal pipework

It's a common fault on 147's (got mine done under warranty
