Alfa Romeo 166

Well Happy Brian Davies

Alfa 166 power steering problem. No power steering and a burning smell. Presume that it is the drive belt for the power steering? - Any suggestions.

Re: Brian Davies

get yer head under the bonnet and see what's happening - sounds like the PAS pump might have seized and the aux belt will just be slipping causing the burning'll need to have a look though

PS - welcome to AO!

Re: Brian Davies

also you may have lost the power steering fluid and what is left is getting very hot hence the burning smell.
