Galaxy MKIII steering pump noise
« on: October 15, 2020, 01:53:30 PM »
Hi

I would need some help.

Ford Galaxy 2007 (2,0 flexyfuel) power steering makes noise. Started a month ago on the road after ab 90 km of driving. Noise is high, whining, constant. When I stopped the engine for about 30 min and then again started the engine, the noise was gone.
Later the noise got more frequent. Already after driving 5 km.

Changed the power steering pump. New fluid, new belt. But the new pump made even louder noise.
Asked the mechanic to fix it, they changed the pump once again, now the noise is a bit quieter, but still there.
Any ideas, what might be the problem?


Thanks!
Urmas

I have a feeling some of the mk3 suffer with a blocked filter in the reservoir for the pas fluid, Did they replace the reservoir or at least clean the filter out?

Hello

Thank you for the idea. They did not replace it. Good to know and I will deal with it. I hope the problem lies there.

Best regards
Urmas
