Hi all, I had some issues with the PAS on my Polo end of last year, thread here: So, I found some pipes and had them fitted along with a new pump, which turned out to be faulty. Garage said to put the original pump back on, which they did. I was told by the chap who worked there that the pump, although run dry, was actually OK, so off I went. Then, over a few weeks the whining got worse and worse, so back to the garage I went! They fitted a pump they supplied and let me pick the car back up again, and again, by the time I got home, the noise was horrendous! Took it back and they've said they'll supply and fit a new pump to see if that fixes it, but if it doesn't they don't know what's wrong, so back to looking at the rack. Does anyone have any idea what the hell could be wrong? Everything works OK, it's just that at low speed (under 10-15mph I'd say) it's making this awful noise. I'm booked in to take it back on Thursday, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas so I could let the garage know. Failing that, is there anyone in the Lincs/Notts-ish area who specialises in Polos who'd be able to look at it? I'm at my wits end with it! Cheers all, Fen.
Hi, would anyone be able to give advice on how to fit a new high pressure power steering hose? It’s on a 6N2 without air conditioning. I have been been able to remove the old one by cutting it in a couple of places, but I’m flummoxed as to how to refit a new one as it has to go from below radiator at PS pump across front, up and back toward bulkhead, then across and down toward steering rack. Has anyone any experience of doing this job? Any guidance would be appreciated. Ed
Hi all, I need some help with sourcing PAS pipes for my '99 6n1. My local garage can't get these, but they said that the metal ends had corroded on both pipes, so I need to replace both. I did put a wanted up but no response as yet and I really need this fixing asap as I've only got the one car. I've looked on eBay for parts, but honestly, there are so many I have no idea what I need. There's this on eBay but that's just one of the ones I need and I don't know what the other is. Haynes not helping me much on this. Can anyone help please? Thanks, Fen.
