Tell me about it! 3 times no.3 seal was replaced in 100,000 miles...
my last one was a proper built on a Friday afternoon car I think, had no end of little issues with it. Electrical issues (headlights would flash brighter at regular intervals at night, causing me to go through bulbs at an alarming rate), leaks in the boot and rear door, there was a nasty whine coming from somewhere too (and I don’t mean the sound of my own voice).
The steering rack I think was knackered too as it would stick in a position, normally when changing lane on a motorway, and would take a bit of force to correct and straighten back up!
i binned it off before it cost me too much to fix. But anyone else I speak to has had little to no issues with theirs, so I’m convinced I was just unlucky!
