  1. Power Steering Reservoir Seal Leak?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've already replaced the shaft seal on the pump, but now it looks like its puking more fluid than ever. A closer look shows that there's fresh fluid coming out of the port that goes into the pump. Bit of a shame that reservoirs and pumps aren't sold separately. It should just be the intake...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi. I have a power steering leak somewhere but I can’t find where exactly. I’m guessing that the leak is somewhere in the red circle of the first pic. Hydraulic fluid is spread all under the car, but as you can see in the second pic, this part (in the red square), is dripping fluid too. Do...
  9. Power Steering & Hose Issue w/Video

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
