    Default Power steering issue hopefully resolved!

    Hi, Had a problem yesterday with my 2004 1.9cdti (120) in that the power steering would stop working for a few minutes and then start working normally until I stopped the engine and restarted it when the p/steering would not work again for a few minutes. No warning lights and no faults shown. This morning had a good look at it, fluid level ok, but found that when I moved the large connector (the one with the 2 large wires coming into it) to the pump started to work again - disconnected this and cleaned the contacts on the pump and on the cable and put it back together and seems to have sorted the steering problem. So fingers crossed its sorted it – had already started to price up a new pump!!
    I have got an issue with the cable plug not locking onto the pump connection although it is now quite a tight fit, the locking tag is missing - will try and obtain a new plug and splice it on or as a last resort silicon the plug together to prevent it coming apart.
    Hope this may help any others with a similar problem.
