As a first thing, fill up your power steering fluid before driving to the garage. If it runs empty, you destroy the PS pump.
In my case (petrol 147) power steering slightly leaked in front of the engine, where the pipes running inside the wheel arch (close to the aux belt) connect to the rubber hoses on the PS cooling spiral. Quite usual on early 147. Revised pipes are plastic instead of original aluminium ones that tend to wear the joint.
Applying this on 156, it would be the place on the picture. I hope itís nothing more serious.
Can't beieve that the pump was leaking itself , did they show you where? tHE PUMP IS PRETTY ROBUST , ITS MORE LIKELY THE SEAL on the pressure pipe leading out of the pump , a small o ring wich fits onto the pressure pipe but hey I could be wrong!
Hi, no all they said that the pump would need to be replaced as was leaking.
never seen where it was leaking from, as i am not a mechanic i decided to take his word for that and get them to repalce the pump with a new one.
never mind new pump fitted and no more leaking on my drive.
