Two leaks
During the MOT last week the tester discovered 2 leaks. Confusedillyme:
First one was the clutch slave cylinder.
When I say leaking, it is 'weeping' (his words, not mine).
Priced a Sachs one for £22.
Is this a DIY job, or leave to the local (not main dealer) garage?
Second one is the power steering pump.
This, again, is not a bad leak and has been like that for 12 months.
Is this a remove and repair, or possible new (recon) pump?
Realise difficult to answer without seeing, but any advise gratefully received.
Hi again Martin,The slave cyl is a relatively simple job.The power steering pump fluid is not changed as part of the servicing schedule & consequently oxidises.My advice is to suck out all you can from the reservoir,top up with new fluid & use it for 100+miles.Repeat the drain & refill at least 3-4 times.This will effectively change the fluid.(check the old oil,should appear "metallic")This will clear as the changes progress.Another tip,for what it's worth,is After the above add a dose of Forte power steering additive.This often rejuvenates the seal & slows/stops the weep.Good luck.

Correct. Have seen it in the flesh. And the leak.
The one on ebay 'appears' to be correct.
Checked SACHS website, and part no. is same.
Saved a few quid then - don't let Mrs XXX know, or she'll be wanting to be treated too
