Over the last few months, I have posted a number of threads relating to.. you've guessed it.. hydraulic issues.
Symptoms included 'steaming LHM', 'Bubbling LHM', and a stuck rear height corrector, as well as inconsistent power steering and the nail in the coffin was a leaking pump.
Well, I bit the bullet and replaced the pump with a friend today. A long job, but by using a little common sense we could have made it much shorter <img src=icon_smile_clown.gif border=0 align=middle>
Now that the pump has been replaced - no more leaks, the back suspension suddenly works again etc, the brakes are deadly <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> and the ride is great.
Next project - Timing Belt <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
PS. While the pump was off, and since we had to take the aux belt off, we decided to replace it. Good job we did, it was a little tatty and torn on the under-side.
PPS. When working out in the sun, don't forget to put sun cream on. We remembered this afterwards !
