    Default Another Power Steering Issue 2.2 DTI Sri

    See a thread lower down about loss of PAS and the ICON showing on the dash. I have a very similar problem but mine happens whenever it feels like. Including driving which makes this car dangerous.
    I have had power issues since I owned it second hand. With warning systems and car going into limp home mode.

    I cant find any reserviour any where and from what I can see is some form of Electro-Hydraulic system which I can find no info on at all.
    ANY IDEAS WHICH COULD ASSIST ME?

    Every time VX have said its stored a fault on clutch switch but accuse me of riding the pedal which I dont.
    Also had low oil light come on which when checked is absolutly fine.

    Hope you guys dont mind this being my first post.
    Thanks
    Lee

    don't mind you making this your first post at all!!

    power steering...it is a hydraulic/electric system..the reservior is down on the rack..If it keeps cutting out, get it to a dealer as it will store a code relating to the electrical supply failing..they have to reset the system..It isn't unknown thou for these racks to have the pump fail completely..if it's out of warranty then it's about six hundred quid to get another, thou there are service exchange ones avaliable..Take it to VX and complain about the lifespan of the unit and tell them it's dangerous..see if they'll change it FOC..

    the clutch switch fault is more than likely down to the pedal return spring which has been subject to an unofficial recall with the dealers quietly replacing them while the car is in for service..sounds like yours hasn't been changed..it lets the pedal not fully contact the switch, so giving that fault..you're being fobbed off.

    low oil light.. sender's failing..not a big job to change and yet again, not the first time it's come up on here..

    This sounds like the dodgy ABS connector syndrome, where the dash dies on you, but will come back up or at least can be re-booted, it does cause fault codes, and can (my old C did) have the power steering drop out as well.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I had trained as a rover mechanic when I left school and still enjoy diy mechanics.
    However as I am looking to sell I guess its better if VX fit as well. I did look earlier after I found a PDF file on here. Fluid levels all ok.
    How long would they get or should I say how many hours labour would be on top of the parts as a guess-ta-mate

    I have no idea mate, but I would think probably round about 2 to 3 hours

    Asked the question today and I was well out. You're looking at 4.5 to 5 hours as the subframe has to be dropped. New bolts have to be fitted to the subframe as well as they are the stretchy type like most cylinder head bolts now. HTH

    Not on the rack Mark, on the subframe, but you probably meant to type 'subframe' so I'll let you off

    Yes, stretchy bolts indeed. When will it end? apparently, if you use the old bolts again it causes horrendous knocking. (Depends how tight you put 'em )
