    Default Power Steering Issue

    My Power steering has been playing up for a few days. It made a loud buzzing noize and lost all power assistance. Then the following day the power assistance returned and the car was fine for nearly a week, then again buzzzzzz.

    I checked the fluid level and it was just above minimum, so I topped it up and it was perfect. The next day, no power assistance and the power steering warning light was on the dash.

    So i took it to the local Bosch garage, who norrowed the fault down to the power steering pump / reservoir tucked behind the drivers side front wheel arch.

    The Happy chaps at Vauxhall wanted over £800 for the part.

    I found a company in Kent who will supply me with a reconditioned part with 2 year warranty for £275.

    So that should arrive on Monday. I hope I get no more Christmas suprises from the car.

    My 2004 Vectra C DTI has the same symptoms. I renewed the fluid but still have the whining noise, so i have purchaced a second hand unit which i will install if it packs in again. I turn up the radio to drown out the whine at low speeds when turning . I have read on the forums that my type of power steering pump doesn't need programmed.
