Well Happy 159 3.2 Q4 Power Steering Issues Solved

Hello, new at this, so apologies if it has been stated before

3.2 Q4 81,000 - Stromboli Grey, Red Leather with gun metal teledial 18" alloys

Had very noisy PS. audible over engine at idle with the fluid circulating at high speed through the fluid reservoir, fluid was the green stuff - mechanics spoken to all came up with it should be red, it should be green

replaced the reservoir (new on ebay for under £40)- easy 10 minute job, refilled and started the engine, turn the steering lock to lock 3 time and refill if needed.

no noise and good as it should be, I guess from previous posts that the return valve was faulty allowing a continuous unrestricted flow of fluid

Had the same fault with mine & thanks to the brilliant tutorial on here of how to fix it I also managed the job myself.
Around £40 for the tank & couple of litres of Tutela green fluid sorted it.
Job done for under £60.
