I think mine is moved. Aren't they normally placed on the strut?
Mine is sat behind the front light.

Im not sure tbh ive looked in so many engine bays but never paid attention to the ps location

Mine was moved to behind the headlight, the bracket is attached to the cross member/slam panel.

Beware when you re-route the hoses the swaged ferrules where the hard pipe meets the hose don't like being moved and will probably leak once they are disturbed.

I'm doing this on mine too. I've already cut off the swaged rubber hose that goes between the return line from the rack and the bottom of the resevoir. I assume as its low pressure you can just use a hose and jubilee clip instead ?
Will probably shorten the R32 PS pump and use a plastic R33 resevoir.

I made up my own PS reservoir and used the bracket for the stock carbon canister :thumbsup:

Yes, great idea. Took it off years ago, wonder if I've got the bracket still !

Cheers

Abbey did the work on mine, they tigged an aeroquip fitting on the back of the standard fitting at the rack and ran a new hose the whole way back replacing that return hard pipe. As you say being the low pressure side, you'd think a jubilee clip would do it just as well though - it's a jubilee clip at the reservoir after all.

I just finished relocating mine on my R33. I removed the charcoal canister from the bracket, cut the mounting tabs off the power steering reservoir, TIG welded the 2 together, ran new braided lines, filled the system and finished project.
