My three year old 159 2.2JTS was in at the dealers this week for an MOT and to have the red fluid changed to correct green Tutela GI/R (which also requires a new reservoir.)On collecting the car I was told I needed a new steering pump and that would be ordered to be fitted next week.They will not,apparently,change the fluid "because it tends to be the diesels that need it".It makes me wonder if the wrong fluid wrecked the pump........
Looking on ePER I see a new one is £293.64 or recon. £240.43.I hope it's the former,as my wife's 147 went through two reconditioned aircon compressors in a month before a fourth unit solved the problems we were having.Poor reconditioned units were blamed by the dealer.Good job my 159 is still under warranty!
