My Dad's power steering failed yesterday morning on his 06 CDTi 150, thankfully while on the drive.
AA called out, and diagnosed the "Motor" had failed and the AA guy had heard about tapping the power steering "Motor" with a hammer to fire it back to life, and sure enough it did the trick.....enabling my Dad to get it down to the garage, who agreed to look at it on Monday for him.
Is there such a thing a power steering 'Motor' on the 1.9 CDTi 150, or does he mean the pump?, just that i looked for replacement motors and nothing comes up, but searching on here it seems the pump failure is common
I was going to look at sourcing a second hand pump but that could be false economy.
We'll see what garage says tomorrow anyway....
