spider power steering?

Can anyone shed any light on this? When I'm going round a left hand bend under power there is a horrid metallic grating sound which gets worse the tighter the bend / greater the speed- going slowly you can't hear it at all. It sounds like it might be a belt catching on something but I,m not sure. Any ideas? Also the power steering seems to me quite noisy from inside the car even when stationary.

Re: spider power steering?

I have the same problem here ('98 spider 2.0). It's definetly Power Steering pump. I don't know British prices but in Poland pump costs around 320 Euro + repair costs 80 Euro. But be carefull in my spider there were 2 manufacturers of Power Steering pump. To know which one u have you should unmout pump and chcek the manufacturer.

greetings from Poland

There's a metal shield behind the brake calipers which can rub against the discs when going around corners. Try sticking your hand behind and try to bend it out of the way a bit. Cured my noise!
