Steering - Power Steering Reservoir Fluid Leak
MODEL & MODEL YEAR:
Power steering fluid leak at reservoir
THIS TNN SUPERSEDES TNN 64-17 DATED 6-27-2007. THE CLAMP PART NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR FILES.
Under certain conditions the power steering may leak fluid at the reservoir suction hose connection. An improved suction hose was introduced into
production in December 2004.
If there is leakage at the reservoir/suction hose connection on the above vehicles, replace the suction hose and clamps only, according to VIDA.
Use the following parts:
Hose: as per VIDA
Clamps: quantity (2) pn 988024
These hose clamps are screw-type clamps. Do not use a crimp-style hose clamp for this repair.
After replacing the hose and clamps, top up the fluid level (see below), and check for leaks. If the leakage is still present, only then should you replace
When checking and topping up the fluid level in the reservoir after the repair, measure when cold and with the engine turned off. Fill the oil until the
level is halfway between the 'cold' and 'hot' marks on the dipstick.
