    Default Astra Help!

    Wondering is anyone can help, my bro has got an 05plate Astra SRI (1.9 CDTI 150bhp). He had an intermitent problem with the power steering just cutting out when he was turning, Saturday it failed totally, and has no power steering whatsoever. No funny noises before hand, fluid is fine etc. Is this a common problem or would anyone have any idea's as to what it could be? Few mechanics have given various suggestions, but would like to get a better idea for him, before he spends his cash on fixing it.

    I have never heard of power steering failure on the Astra 1.9, my was fine, but usually this type of problem leads to the electric power steering pump.

    Went out and had a look at it for him, asked him where he'd been looking for his powersteering fluid, he pointed to his brake fluid resivoir lol! Checked the powersteering fluid, nothing in there, went and bought a litre from the stealers, poured it in, and it went straight back out when started. Took it to a couple of local mechanics I know, couldn't get a straight answer from either of them. Then took it to the stealers in the end, diagnosed as the pump. Now trying to pursue Evans Halshaw, as the vehicle was bought from them 7weeks ago, and from what I can see it's been leaking for quite a while. Something you'd expect to be picked up on PDI. Cheers anyway mate
