long time no post as my daughter has had no problems with the car until now, story is:

daughters puma (1999 1.4cc) started to leak PAS fluid, so took it to a "friend at his garage" and said the steering rack needs to be replaced, so bought a good known working second hand rack (she is a student so trying save money) he fits that and the steering is like banging when you start it up, he then turns around and says that rack is scrap at this point im thinking what a load of crap, anyway took it to another mate with a garage and this time bought a reconditioned rack, he fits this then and the same, banging, then finds out the one way valve is missing, so i buy one of those, he fits that and still the same!

now im being told it maybe the PAS pump thats faulty?

any ideas anybody as its starting to cost now

thanks

Pump is lubricated by the fluid so if its run low because of a leak in the rack you could also find damage to the pump.

What kind of banging, can you hear where it's coming from?
