Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a power steering pump do?

The power steering pump is either an electric motor pump or a mechanically driven pump that pressurises the hydraulic fluid for the power assisted steering rack.

What does a power steering pump replacement involve?

Whilst there are variations between manufacturers, the basics are pretty similar.

The mechanic will;

  • Check the operation of the power steering pump if it needs to be replaced
  • Undo the power steering pipe unions attached to the pump
  • Drain the power steering fluid from the pump
  • Remove the power steering pump and replace it with the new unit
  • Put everything back together
  • Refill the PAS fluid and bleed the system
  • Start the car and test the steering

Can I do a power steering repair myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a power steering repair is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

How long will a power steering repair take?

On average, power steering repair times can range from 1 to over 2 hours with an average of 1.2 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace the power steering pump?

The power steering pump will most likely not require replacing during the lifetime of a vehicle. Whilst it is a unit that is in constant use, they are relatively robust parts. As the unit is fundamental to having control of a vehicle, especially at low speeds, its operation is critical and therefore as soon as it has been confirmed that the pump needs to be replaced it needs to be done.

Can you drive with broken power steering?

If you experience any untoward characteristics in your steering, or if you suspect there is any issue with the power steering or there are concerns about its condition, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle. Steering is obviously critical to a vehicle's use so any issues that arise with it are not only dangerous, they could be life threatening.

Is faulty power steering an MOT failure?

Yes, faulty power steering will normally result in an MOT failure. Since steering is a safety critical component, the MOT tester will inspect it for insecure placement, fractures, misalignment, leaks and even lack of power steering fluid.

Can a power steering line be repaired?

It is recommended power steering fluid line or pipe are replaced, it is often easier and less expensive to simply replace the entire line than to carry out an inadequate (and potentially dangerous) repair. Also, it should be worth noting that a power steering fluid line repair is often a temporary fix and will need to be replaced at some point in the future anyway.
