I have a 53 reg 1.8TDCI Focus Saloon. About 3 weeks ago I noticed my steering was getting noisy. I realised that the power steering fluid was low so I topped it up - problem solved I thought.

SInce then it keeps running low and leaking -when my car is parked on the driveway at night I can see in the morening a big patch of fluid, that has leaked.

I am due to be selling the car so don't want to spend much on it but fluid is 15 a time. ANy ideas what it might be / cost of fixing?

Could be burst/insecure pipe, faulty pump or burst rack gaitors.
You would be best to look at it to see where it's leaking from, it should be visable.
