Where Is The Thread On Cleaning The Power Steering Fluid Screen/filter


Recommended Posts

I am having trouble using the Google search. Apparently there is a thread on here on how to remove and clean the power steering filter/screen. Apparently there is one on the steering rack and one near the reservoir?

good luck!

I need to check that on mine and see if it will help at all, because, oh boy its leaking heavily now! I have to pour fluid in every 3 or 4 days now and its now leaving puddles where I park it. :( The pump is also now making a whining sound more often, as it gets low on fluid often now. Oh well maybe one of these days I can afford a pump and have it installed.

One thing to consider is a alternator shield:


Here are the direct links to the pics mentioned in that thread:
