Complete loss of power steering fluid


Recommended Posts

Good old TT just suffered a complete (and sudden) loss of power steering fluid. It happened at the very end of a 200km trip (mostly highway). Driving out of the highway, I noticed a noise coming from the front when steering. Luckily, I reached destination quickly. A look at the fluid level made it clear: the stick was dry. The fluid had just finished to leak and the last drops were falling to the ground under the engine.

The car is now at a local Porsche dealer. I wonder whether it's just a hose, the pump, or... ?

Got my baby back. Instead of the announced CHF 1k, they wanted to charge me CHF 1.8k (USD 2k). I told the guys it's quite a stretch from 1k, and they went down to CHF 1.4k (USD 1.55k), which is ok.

Besides that, the whole 'experience' was excellent: friendly people all the way, the car was delivered in top condition, etc. Kudos to www.porsche-lausanne.ch.

I will post pics of the faulty parts soon.
