Hi guys, I replaced the o-ring in my power steering pump a few months back, fixing the bubbling and whining noise for a while. However out of nowhere the whine came back, however this time its a bit different. Its only seems to come after a while, and is pretty hit or miss, sometimes it doesn't have any issues. However when it starts whining, whenever I make a turn, a loud screeching noises comes from the steering wheel, appvalleyand I can fe tutuapp el vibrations on the wheel. Its almost like an elastic band being stretched and the tension is on the car. Now I'm thinking I probably have to replace the entire pump, I can see a small leak coming directly under the reservoir, and there are bubbles, but the level looks fine. I'm thinking I need to replace a tweakbox nother o-ring, maybe the one for the pipe leaving directly under the reservoir. Does anyone have the part number, or could the screeching mean something worse?

Thanks

yeah sounds like your pump is on it's way out for sure. They aren't that bad in price and easy to change. I'd start there
