Change PAS fluid or not? AR159
I have a 159 sw 1,9 jtdm 2007 wich recently developed the famous steering groan.
Ive read about the reservoir problem and im confident thats where my problem is.
The car has done 170.000km (105.000 miles) and has red/brown fluid in.
The general solution seems to be changing the reservoir and at the same time change to the synthetic green type fluid.
However, ive also read that some people have had immediate failure of the rack seals after changing to the thinner fluid on cars with high milage.
Ive had no problems with leakage, or for that matter any type of steering related issues until now. This sound started over night....
Should i just change the reservoir and top up with red fluid, or go for the full change to green?
Has anyone here experienced problems after changing type of fluid?
