    Hi, So next problem :rolleyes: : I have a considerable power steering leak coming from under the battery compartment area. It is leaking considerably since it needs weekly-monthly top ups. What am I looking at, in terms of repairing it? :eek:

    You need to find where it's leaking exactly. I'm not familiar with your vehicle but it could be just a simple split hose or loose fitting.

    There's a pair of steel PAS pipes that run through there to the box, from the other side of the vehicle. Pipe run is under the rad/cooler group, along the top of the chassis crossmember. Mine were very corroded when I changed them a couple of years back.

    This seems to be the source of the leak

    hmm, I see there are many seal kits. Will check how difficult they are to do though :) while there is the steering box out, are there any other components that would be worth changing? I am thing of the steel pipe that seems to be very prone to corroding from what others are saying...
