Power Steering Pipe Leaking, Pump To Rack WITH A/C.

Post by rob1679 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 9:54 pm

As title...... just pulled up at home and power steering fluid everywhere, pipe has corroded and is holed.
Being an air con model it's the hose below I think.....
Anyone got a useable one for sale???

You can try Ian G or take the removed hose to a local Hydraulic pipe repairer and that will make you up a replacement for a fraction of Fords prices.

I've got one here came off OK but looks like it won't last long. Might get you out of a spot but you'll be back in it in 6 months.

Very rare used these now.

Is it by chance the same as this Fiesta hose?

It looks similar except that they may have removed the pressure switch?
You could measure the overall length of yours with string and see if there's is a match.

Getting a pipe made up will be brand new and not cost much more than the ebay add, however if they can't spot weld brackets on, you may have to fabricate some hanger brackets using perhaps radio brackets and m6 nut and bolts.

Pressure switch has been removed - see the listing -

'IN VERY GOOD CONDITION COMPLETE WITH THREADED HOLE FOR PRESSURE SWITCH'

Looks in quite good condition, if that's the one that turns up then winner however be careful of library images, looking how many he has he either has a great supply of remarkably clean rust-free cars or he photographed the best one and that's not what you'll get.

Well worth a look though, if that's the one that you'll be getting it would be a very rare thing indeed.

Thanks for your reponse Ian .
It's good news than when we start searching for a replacement in the future that we have an option of fitting a hose that is listed as a Fiesta Zetec s as well as those listed specifically for a Puma.
In the meantime, please save any good ones off the cars you dismantle, as they will be needed in the near future
