Dreaded power steering failure - anyone had help from Alfa ?
It looks like i've fallen foul of the well documented power steering problems, my hope is it's only the reservoir valve but it could be the pump.
It's frothing with a brown liquid out of the reservoir but also making a horrible whining noise when turning the wheel.
The car has only done 20K miles so im rather annoyed it's gone so early. Has anyone had any help with the costs on this from Alfa as if i'm not mistaken it's a fault known by Alfa
Unfortunately the car is outside it's warranty period so i'm trying to minimise the costs here. Finally is it safe drive drive the car in this state ? - obviously only be a short drive the the local Alfa independent
Anyone know the part number for the pump in case i need to source one ? - 09 159 1.9JTD TI
Alfa TI & Giulietta 2.0 Veloce
