It isn't black, its blue!

Default Power steering problem?

I had the serious misfortune of one of the couplings between the soft hoses from the PS pump to the hard pipes leading into the steering rack apparently rattling its way loose, causing a total loss of power assist.
Has anyone else encountered such a problem?

And of course the "roadside assistance" would have towed me to a dealer- which wouldn't help a bit on Saturday, I managed to drive without PS nearly 150 miles to Boulder CO and had it tightened up at the Elway Subaru Dealership there.

(Hat's off to those guys! it's nice to see someone actually help out in a time of need for a change!)

In any case, I'd suggest having your tech's check those little fittings next time their poking around under the car

No offense, but you "managed to drive without PS nearly 150 miles"?!? I drive without power steering every single day of the week and actually considered removing the power steering in my former project car (1994 Probe GT) to free up some power. Hardly a need for roadside assistance.

I am glad you got it sorted out and found a dealership with good service. I hope when I order my WRX here in town they will offer good service
