Hi Loren/Jeff:

 

2009 C2S 93K miles

 

I have a Power Steering leak.  I ran out of fluid, got the noise, refilled.  Do you have any advice as to where these leaks occur?  See pics below where I have one dirty and one cleaned up.  The gunk was even on the side of the tank, above the pump.  It appears heaviest around the metal hose fitting, but that may not be the source of course.  The pump does not make any noise.  The tank jiggles just a bit... I wonder if this is the issue.

 

Thanx much,

I'd start by cleaning the pump off and filling it so that you can get a better look at were the leak is coming from, but I would bet it is where the tank seals to the pump, or the tank itself.

Thanx Jeff, I think it is the little interface tube between the tank and pump also.  Why?  The tank wiggles for one thing, and second, the #6 screw is missing.... but there is no hole in the plastic flange!!!!  Have you ever seen this before?  There is no hole in the tank to insert that #6 screw.

 

Do you have any access to pump/tank remove replace instructions?  It looks pretty tight in there.... may have to remove the alternator.... yikes!

 

Peace

Both the alternator and AC compressor are in the way.  If you have access to a Bentley manual, the R&R is fully covered with photos, starting on page 48-13.  While there are some small differences on the later cars, it will give you an excellent overview of the process.
