Re: power steering 156

why do you think its the pump?

the power steering pump wouldnt cause a judder at a certain speed, it could cause a judder at a certain rpm, but not a speed. that will be more likley due to a buckled or misbalanced wheel or a tyre that is damaged or worn bushes on your track rod ends.

to locate the whining sound get a short length of hose pipe, stick one end in your ear and point the other end close to the bearing on each pulley, then you can easily tell which is noisey.
