I have just brought a clio 16v phase 1, although i need to fix the Power steering pump, just wondered if any one knows how easy a job it is or if theres any tips or things i should know about to make it easier?
They are a pig to change as there is hardly any room to work. Check theres plenty of fluid in the resevoir first, as mine was starting to get loud turned out to be just a lack of fluid! The belt might be Fooked?
Cheers finch, do most parts places sell reconned pumps? I got a price of £235 from renault and thats without fitting?? mite have a go myself then cus i did an alternator on my 1.4rt last year.
thanks for the advice mate!
Mine is on 120k but only whines a little bit, been like that ever since i had the car so i don't worry about it! Aside from that everything else is smooth-as!
I wouldn't buy from Renault if i were you, they're a total rip-off. Try and get a re-con unit or a second hand pump from somewhere. You could try the local breakers, but i'm sure there are some MK1 breakers on here that will be able to sort you out!
i took mine to a garage cuz the power steerin make a noise and the mechanic said its nothin to worry about as its just got old and theres no point puttin a new one on cuz its fine. Never heard a mechanic turn down work!
mmm well i pumped my front tyres up last nite and it doesnt seem as bad as wot it was but would still like to get it sorted (i want it to be mint if you know wot i mean)
btw is that your clio on your avatar (if so lokks v.nice.)
do you knw how much a second hand/reconned 1 wud be?
Yeah try changing anything on a 16v and its a proper mission!! Most pumps are noisey as standard, unless its actually starting to fail (eg sometimes its super heavy and doesnt work) I wouldn't bother touching it.
