  1. Strange PAS leak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning all, As the title suggests, I've a strange PAS fluid leak on my 2.4 159. Yesterday morning noticed a bit of groaning and particularly heavy steering when leaving the dentist's. As I was heading home anyway, I thought to check the level of the PAS fluid, and to my surprise, was below the...
  2. GT JTDM Cloverleaf PAS issue

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Everyone, Recently I noticed a leak on the PAS pipe from the pump to the rack. I am pretty sure it was the high pressure supply line which at the rack end goes into a loop made from aluminium before connecting to the rack. About half way along the pipe there was what looked like a connector...
  3. 159 2.2 JTS Battery light and no PAS

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, on the way home this evening my steering became very heavy, the battery light also came on. I have since read that it’s most likely the auxiliary belt. I get that makes sense. My concern is the belt running up over the PAS pump seems under tension. Is the PAS pump driven by a...
  4. PAS Fluid Leak/ PAS Pump change?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, after some help for my 1999 GTV V6. I have a pas leak. After changing the usual metal pipe that was covered in chemical metal and changing the hose for good measure I still have a leak in the same area, my next guess would be the PAS Pump itself or should I be looking elsewhere? Has...
  5. PAS Pump seal kit

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    AR used to sell a power steering pump rebuilt kit for the 3.0. It was basically just a collection of seals for the pump. AR no longer stocks the kit but I believe the pump was made by ZF. Does anyone know if such kits are available direct from ZF themselves? They have a local ZF service centre...
  6. (another) PAS fluid topic, HELP needed

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys. So, i've been searching (a lot) around here, and on the web on general but I'm still a bit confused about what I should do. Long story short, my '06 159 still have the red fluid, from factory I think. It's level on the reservoir is a bit low and I'd like to put some to get it back up...
  7. PAS Fluid advice

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I am running an 07 2.2jts brera with 65k on the clock. I now have the old classisc of pas noises on cold starts when turning the steering wheel. I have not yet inspected the resevoir, but do you think now is the time to swap to green or is it too risky due to potential leaks? Also...
  8. 156 JTDM PAS pipes oil mist

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I've recently taken my car for a service and the garage spotted a slight misting of oil on the PAS pipes. I want to replace them so I was wondering if they're doable for the average Sunday mechanics warrior or if they're a pig of a job (ie: seized stuff, inaccessible parts, etc..) I...
  9. Supplier for PAS seal kits?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've been looking for a V6 PAS pump seal kit for sometime. According to my local dealer it's no longer available from them and I'd have to either source a good used pump or find someone who can supply or make the seals. Has anyone know of a place that stocks suitable seals or the kit? It's...
  10. PAS fluid and Diff oil - what to do?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So as per my other thread I am not the proud owner of a 2.4 Q4 MY08. I ordered last night the complete timing belt kit with water pump and also a new manifold whilst it's being done as I'm told it's practically simple once the belt is being done. Anyway I have the reddish PAS fluid and I do feel...

  16. Rebuilding a PAS pump

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anyone had a go at it?? Mine's leaking a little bit. I see there's a rebuild kit available (PN 9939873) for the pump. Unfortunately the spring isn't order able anymore. Is this something that should be changed or am I being a pedant? I'd hate to rebuild the pump only for it to fail again...
  17. TBi PAS liquid

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys, I am looking into the PAS issue and thinking it's time to replace my fluid. My Alfa 159 is 1.75 TBi from 2010, and (contrary to a previous post of mine - I made a mistake there) I have the green liquid. So I want to replace only due to age reasons, but I'm wondering if I should also...

  19. MOT advisory - PAS cooler mount

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, First post! I recently bought myself a 2.0TS 156 on an '02 plate from ebay without an MOT. A bit risky perhaps but I think I got it for a decent price and it's only done 88,000 miles. Well, it scraped through the MOT but needs some work doing. One of the advisory's was that the PAS cooler...
  20. RHD 33 PAS pipe

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    I wondered if anyone with a RHD car could help? I'm trying to re-fit the rigid PAS pipe that goes across the back of the engine bay below the steering rack but I can't remember how it fits. I have fitted the 2 white plastic clips in the holes just under the rack on either side of the...
