I have just completed a conversion to 1.8T, this went fairly well but did involve me removing the pipe from pwr steering pump to rack. This is driving me mad with leaks. Firstly I was sold the wrong fluid....I knew it should be mineral but this was red. Anyway drained that and replaced with the proper green mineral oil.

So first question ...has the red stuff damaged the seal causing a leak ? unlikely I think.

Secondly why can't I get the pipe fitting to seal. I have replace the seal but it's still leaking. am I tightening it too much and damaging the seal.

Help !!! I am just fed up rolling around under this thing. Or anyone know someone in Hemel Hempstead who can look at it.
