Re: Seal kit for powersteering pump?

Remove the pump and replace the O-ring. Very simple to do. Buy the O-ring from any shop that sells seals etc. I paid R4 for the O-ring and problem solved. It is just a miserable job to take the pump out and to put it back. Pity I did not know about the Pro-long fix!
