MK5 power steering pump

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone.I have bought a w reg fiesta 1.8 td (lynx)

It is making a horrendous screeching noise on tickover.I looked today and its coming from the power steering pump pulley.

I do not think its the belt slipping.

so my question is,

Is this common and do i just need to get a new power steering pump?

Thanks

Hello and welcome

It may be the belt or could be the pump. Get it checked by a garage so you know which it is then you can source the correct part.

is it a power steering belt? or is it called something else?

a guy looked today and said its not the pump and that the belt needs changing and correctly tensioning.

Should have tried dripping a small amount of water onto the belt, if the noise stops you know you have to get a new belt!
