Fitting Power Steering Pump

I'm about to change the PAS pump and wondered if there are any tips or things i should be aware of and do before i go plunging in.
Couldn't find a 'How To' thread on it so if there's something helpful i should know, i'm all ears

It's fairly easy. I can't think of anything special.

Was about to say the same.

They normally never go wrong. Had a leaky one, sorted that with a bit of silicone.

Paul,

do you run a custom PAS reservoir or the standard one???

I have made a custom one for my car so I could relocate it and at the beginning it was 100% tight which has caused cavitation when turning I think giving a similar noise like you said...

...the I made a small slot into the surface where the O-ring of the cap sits as a vent and now everything works fine again

HTH
