159 power steering pump
Another problem with my 159 JTDM. There's a horrible moaning noise from the engine after maybe 5 mins. after start-up, which is made much worse with steering wheel movement to either side. It sounds like the power steering pump is on the way out. I don't think it's leaking fluid.
Assuming it is the pump, I've been looking up prices. A new one is €360, but I can get one from a car dismantler for €100. Sounds like a no-brainer to me but what do people think? I suppose there's no way of knowing how long a second-hand one would last?
