    Hi guys
    Need some help a grey connector with what looks like a switch has come off my power steering pump. Well I assume it's my power steering pump as I can see red power steering fluid in the hole where it appears to have come loose.

    A few questions:
    Does the thingy mabobin just clip back into place or does it come set in the nut?
    If so is there any way to repair it?

    Many thanks in advance

    It seems it is a pressure switch. Best I get a replacement. Apologies I should have Googelated first.

    You don't want to see red power steering fluid, audi stuff is green, red is usually generic and bad for audi's

    Oh really. **** the car has full service history with audi. I will order some audi fluid then. Thanks for the heads up. Now that I think about it I did read that somewhere on this fantast forum.
