When diagnosing an unusual noise from the power steering pump or that steering requires extra effort due to low power steering pressure attention
should be paid to the contaminants in the power steering oil.
Analysis has shown that the steering system could be contaminated with small particles originating from the manufacturing process of the power steering
hoses. These particles may cause damage to the power steering pump. In these cases small metal particles can be found in the steering oil reservoir. See
photos 1 and 2 in the attachment.
