My power steering pump sounds awful again now, i cant turn the wheels at all whilst stationary/ and at slow speeds/tight turns its moaning like a %&*%.

The pump is about a year old and has been filled twice with the correct spec fluid (only refilled as i did a TDI engine swap and has engine out.

I also had an advisory of play in both ends of my steering rack on recent MOT.

How do i know whats causing me a problem (ps pump or steering rack?)

I filled the resevior as described in the manual. (lock to lock topping up as i went)

The belt isnt loose or anything, its brand new. any ideas?

Try a bottle of Lucas Power steering fluid, its amazing stuff, if that doesnt free it up then its new pump time I think...

when you swaped the engine when refiting has a pipe been crushed of kinked up and not getting the right amount of fluid in to work the rack correctly just a thought.

im thinking that this is possible, going to check this tomorrow, i have rerouted all the piping and modified the cooling pipe to clear the sprinter intercooler. maybe the top panel is pinching a pipe somewhere, will confirm tomorrow,

thanks in advance
