    Default Steering pump/ reservoir

    Just wanted to make doubly sure guys that when VX fit a new steering pump that the reservoir comes as an integral part of the pump, as mines going in next week some time to have new one fitted under warranty and intend on marking what I can get to i.e the reservoir, as you can tell , I just don't trust these dealers !!

    The reservoir is under the drivers side front wing. That is were you top it up. So I don,t think it is part of the pump. But if the System was contaminated. Say by swarf ( metal particals) then yes I would have thought it should be changed too, also the rack.
    Why are they changing the pump?. If just the pump is "duff" I doubt it that they will change the reservoir as well.

    Thanks Ed, steering is feeling intermittently heavy ( not excessively , but noticeable), only got a week or so left on warranty, so thought I'd get in for them to check, said there were some fault codes stored regarding the steering , hence the need for replacement.
    Cheers Pete

    I think you took the best course of action, seeing as you still have some warrenty left.
