Default Any locals with the dreaded power steering line problem?

I'm probably being way too paranoid about this since I haven't had any leaks or trouble, but the shear number of reported problems on i-club has got me kinda worried. I haven't had the time to crawl under the car lately but I'd like a heads up so I know exactly what to look for and what to tighten up. Anyone?

I lost all my ps fluid due to those loose fittings, and I know Glenn did also. You need to tighten those two fitting that come out of the rack - if you do a search under Glenn's name, he posted pics of where exactly you'll find them... easier than describing the location.

Me too.

Also check the nut under the turbo. It is on the same line that goes into the power steering rack.

Oh ya, that nut under the tubo on mine was loose enough to tighten with my fingers!

I had problems too, to the extend that it seized the pump, however it was replaced under warranty by Carter. Those guys are great
