Hi

I recently had a new power steering pump and pipe fited everything seems ok but im getting a weering noise is this normal when a new one is fitted? I know before when it wasnt working properly I had a weering noise but was worse?

Also my exhaust rattles a bit my mechanic assures me its just stuff loose inside but does anyone know how to stop this or make it quieter?

Thanks in advnce

My mk1 was leaking fluid from the steering rack and I had to top it up every so often.  Occasionally it would whine slightly when steering.  Mine also had a rattly exhaust but that turned out to be the heatshield as the fixing bolts just rust away.  I got under mine, cleaned around the bolts as best as possible and stuck it back up with wads of milliput...

Ah.. the good old days...

"Milliput"   Best thing since sliced bread.

Depending on which bread you buy they can sometimes serve the same purpose =D
