I just went out of warranty im at 51k. I noticed fluid leaking around my fog light on the passenger side and also some fluid in the splash guard in the wheel well. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Is there a common point the fluid would be leaking from?? <p>I had my steering rack replaced around 37k right before I bought the car. Do you all think this could be the problem? <p>I have a aftermarket warranty but they on cove up to $75/hr for labor and up to MSRP for parts. I have a feeling the stealership is gonna be way more expensive. <p>Anyone have any Ideas?? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Is it common on R's to have a Power Steering leak? (BigG)

pictures would help <p>But with the little information given, I'd try to make sure it is PS fluid and not something else

Ill take some pics later today but the PS fluid seems low which leads me to believe that's where its coming from.

Re:

Yes, *very* common, but primarily on 04s with the narrower ID reservoir outlet hose and old-style reservoir. Should be an easy fix if the leak is coming from the reservoir area...

There was a TNN on this. Can't remember what it said, but since your out of warranty I guess that doesn't help anyway... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
