    bonjour..:twitchy:

    i fitted a new power steering pump on my car yesterday. it works fine when your going along and the revs are up, but when the engine is on idle you can bearly turn it.

    its got enough fluid, and im sure im bled it.

    any ideas what might be wrong :shrug: i hope its not the rack...(yn)

    You sure you bled it up properly? Like had someone in the car going from side to side? You might nbot have enough fluid in the system if you didn't do that.

    dear safety, thank you for your letter.

    your feet a much more sensetive than people think, specially in the arch area.
    we are all worried about losing out in the race against time and because of this many people resort to cremes with alchohol. dont do it. what i would suggest, instead, try dr carolyn litvers patented moisturizier.
    this podiatrist-developed cream is great for moisturizing rough, dry skin on feet, heels, elbows and the backs of your hands. Urea exfoliates away dead skin cells to reveal softer skin.

    have you checked the hoses mate??

    if not...it sounds like its your rack unfortunately, get it checked out ASAP...cos if it goes...ur foooked.

    To find out if it is the steering rack causing the problem, check out the power steering fluid closely to see if you notice small metallic pieces of metal floating around in it. If you do, then your steering rack is wearing out and the metallic pieces are the evidence that the rack is coming apart.

    Most renaults are cunts to be honest, was doing the master cylinder on a megane yesterday, not fun.
    I work for a french & german car specialist which is alright.
    We've got no time targets & that bollocks so it's good!
