    Hi everyone, I have the following question about Power Assisted Steering System on my DEFENDER 110 300 TDI:
    If I am out in the wild offroading far away from any village or city and if it happens that either the power steering pump is damaged or the power steering pipes (hoses) are damaged or start leaking will I be able to turn the wheel and drive my Landy until I reach the nearest settlement where I could have help.

    Have anyone from you ever been in this or a similar situation and what is your experience?

    Every response is appreciated because it will help me to be ready if this occurs to me.

    Thank you

    Yes, just a bit heavy that's all.

    yes, assistance will be lost and the steering will be very heavy but it will be okay to drive in a pinch.

    The power steering pump in my 300tdi went.. As drove out of fuel station before a 3 hour drive. Steering heavy thou okay aslong as vehicle is moving. Completed the drive and drove it to garage next day for the repair

    Same story with a vacuum pump, just have to jump on pedal to make the vehicle stop!
