Re: Sticky windows and leaky power steering
Sticky window cure usually seems to be a good dose of silicone spray down the window runners. I was convinced it was electrical (well, electronics) at first on mine, but after some suggestions (and not finding anything wrong with the control electronics) I tried the spray. After it had had a bit of time to work it's way round, the window has been fine. Root cause seems to be extra load caused by tired window runners makes the over-current bi-metallic trip on the motor operate. Then takes a few moments to cool off and reset. Of course, we keep pressing the switch so it never gets a chance to cool down.....
The 164 used to suffer with oil leaks from the rack into the boots...then eventually out onto the floor. Made tracing it tricky at first...same brand of rack (IIRC) so may be somewhere to check for the missing fluid.
