More pain, power steering problem

Hi Guys,

Little help need here identifying a problem.

I went to drive to work the other day and i noticed a strange ratteling, sounded like it was behing the steering wheel. I turned off and restared and it continued.

i went to drive away and the steering wheel was impossible to turn, so i left it there. then noticed that there was fliud running down my drive! it was coming from passanger side of the engine. i had a poke around and i can see the fluid around the pipes below the water filler bottle, but cant see where its coming from.

could it be the power steering pump or the rack? is it a cheap easy fix?

i love my gtv, but as its a second car, and having replaced the cat, exhaust, thermostate, plugs and leads im strapped for cash now and thinking if its time to give in and get something sensible

any help appreciated.

Yes, the ps fluid pipes run across to the passenger side, you probably need a new pipe, not quite as bad as a rack or pump.
