    Power Steering Pump

    Hi guys,

    Took my A4 B6 into dealer today to get looked at ref 12 year corrosion warranty and when he drove it round the back he said he could feel juddering and said it'll be my power steering pump!?
    I know theres a judder when I turn but didn't know what it was exactly. Does anyone know if this is a big/expensive job?
    I'm starting to worry a tad as he made out it was urgent and was pricey to get fixed.

    Cheers!

    new part around £70-100 from what i can gather anyway, the actual removal and refitting shouldnt be too difficult garage shouldnt charge more than 2-3 hours max labour plus cost of fluid

    I refuse to pay dealer labour rates, if its a job i cant do myself or cant be bothered too, i have a few indys that i trust and they always look after me, theres a parts supplier on ebay that ive always had great quality stuff from called ATP theyre based in germany but the postage is always quick, they list the pump for few pence short of £70

    Yeh I'd never pay their rates but he only mentioned it when he drove it round the back to do a paint test. I'm not going to buy anything just yet incase it turns out NOT to be the PAS pump. Will wait on my mate to have a look.
    Cheers lads, appreciate your replies.

    There's a chap on here called Adam24 or something. I'm sure he could offer a very good price.

    I recently had similar problems on a 1.9 tdi. Turned out to be the clutch pulley on the alternator. Part was around £30 and took about
    30 mins to change.
