    Default 1.8 power steering motor

    My power steering motor on my 1.8 seems a bit noisy. Its been like that since a bought the car 10k ago, and has never got any worse. It isn't very noisy, you can onley realy hear it outside the car. Has anyone else noticed this sound?

    It should be green , and it's situated right behind the corner of the bumper on the driver's side.
