power steering leak

1535 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  dugald

have had a pretty good sized leak from the power steering on my 1982 380sl - not sure where exactly but will investigate next week.

*was wondering if there is a common area on the steering pump or hoses to start the search??

thanks in advance.

I think that high pressure hose is a common failure item. The part sells for about $100 last time I looked. Installation is a bit awkward but not worth $600 for pro labour. You can DIY w/o a lift.
