Got the car towed to garage today. Got a call this evening to say it seems to be just burst pipes and that pump seems to be ok but won't be sure until they put fluid in the system again.

I should hope the pump is ok coz with a couple of pipes and labour coming in at 275 plus 100 for towing my pocket is gonna take a fair hit

Have something to contribute?

I had the same problem with mine, the high pressure inlet pipe for the power steering pump goes into a compression nut on the power steering pump. Turns out the seal inside this nut had gone and the needed to replace it. Bummer is that you cannot remove the pipe without damaging it so I filled the reservoir, drove it to a garage and one compression nut, high pressure pipe and £180 late i got it back all fixed, all be it with an overfilled reservoir!

Collected it today and so far so good. The only downside is the battering my wallet took, nearly sent the missus into early labour
