Power Steering reservoir filter screen
Hi all, I have really enjoyed the board, and all of the helpful tips. I try to add my own when I can.
I have the classic whiny power steering pump, and I have tried to fix it with different fluids and additives, but to no avail. I believe it is caused by cavitation, and I would like to repair/poke a hole in/or otherwise mangle the screen filter somewhere in the pump reservoir...which I believe is clogged.
Has anyone located this screen? I have heard it is only replaceable by replacing the reservoir, but if I have to take the pump off to get the reservoir off, then I might as well replace the pump, too. I would rather not do this right now.
If someone knows where this filter screen is located, I would like to drain the reservoir and punch a hole in it with a screwdriver, or pull it out with some needlenose pliers. Anyone know where it is?
