2.0 JTDM 159

Help 15 days of joy!

Hi fellas, have had 15 days of joy from my 59 2.0 JTDm 159, started her up this evening and it looks like my power steering pump has failed.

Started her up this evening to a whining noise and power steering fluid bubbling from the release nipple in the cap.

Turned her off and had the AA out to confirm my suspicions (as part of warranty cover) but as it was past dealer (Chris variarva) closing time nothing done currently.

AA man suggested it should have been trailered to dealer but they're closed, and has noted that it could be driven to the dealers tomorrow (some 20 miles) but nowhere else.

Going to phone the dealer tomorrow morning, but where do I stand as far as hire cars/collection of mine (don't fancy driving it down the motorway to the dealers) under my 'premier' warranty?

Experiences/tips appreciated.

Its most likely the return valve in the fluid reservoir has gone. Its a common fault and an easy fix

How is this fixed? Mine is doing the same!
I have read somewhere that you need to fit a new reservoir... Is this true???
