    Default 2.2 Power Steering replacement

    On the night before we were all due to go to Devon, the power steering failed on my 2.2 SRi 52 plate. No warning, just dead on starting the car. Ended up having to hire a car whilst vx dealer took a look.

    They are telling me I need the EHPS unit replaced - £800 odd for the part plus fitting plus vat - £1200 total. Tried my local one-man-band garage, but he says because the unit needs to be programmed, has to go to vx.

    Has anyone had the same experience? If £1200 is the right price, I may end up having to scrap the car as I also need a hub assembly, exhaust and oil leak repaired - total cost more then the cars value!

    the item will need programming but if your garage fits the part it can then be taken to vx for programming shouldnt cost more than £50 ive just had it done on mine very big job involves dropping the sub frame

    Bump.

    Been driving round for the past few months without any power steering, but it's now MOT time, so need to get it fixed.

    Can I get a new pump anywhere other then at Vx??

    That's of course if it's the pump and not something else wrong.

    Must be a right sod not having PAS.

    Thanks for the info! Any thoughts on how the exchange unit gets coded to the car? Trip to Vx?

    Power steering has been playing up for about a year now, most noticeably a droning noise when switching off the ignition - bit like an aircraft turbine coming to rest! It then just died completely one night. It's fine when going straight, although parking is quite a challenge
