I've had the power steering warning light on my dash for about 2 years now & with the mot rules about to change I thought I had better get round to getting it fixed. Read the fault codes & got C1534, which from what I can gather from some of the foreign forums is power steering fluid level. The level is fine, so I thought I'd try a new sensor. Ordered the part from the dealers tuesday, paid £52.38 for it, went to collect it today only to be told Vauxhall 'no longer service that part' - basically they don't make it anymore!! How can they stop making a part for a car that was only released 10 years ago! (I think I know the answer, probably involves a new PAS pump). They said they would check their dealer network tomorrowto see if somewhere has one in stock but otherwise they can't upply the part.
Basicallly I can't find this part anywhere online. I've tried ebay & all the usual online parts places but nowhere has one. If I can't get one from a scrappy or local motor factors I'll have to buy a complete pump & sensor off ebay.
Can anyone suggest somewhere that might sell one? Failing that does anybody know If this sensor can be programmed out via Tech2 & if the dealers would do this for me?
Any advice appreciated
