Re: PAS Pump

Stripping it down on wednesday, so by the sounds of it its either Belt, Tensioner, PAS Pump, or alternator!

Can you get a tension roller as opposed to the full tensioner? It does sound like a bearing type noise so this is my suspision.

PAS Pump

Got a horrible bearing type noise emiting from the area of the PAS pump. Assuming it is that, is there any differance between models, or are they all the same?

I also replaced rocker cover gaskets, and carried out a sniff test just for a sanity check. The car is now on 106,000...
