Ford Transit 03 plate power steering

Featured Posts

Nothing to do with boating at all, but we seem to have a lot of knowledge on here so.....does anyone have any advice on the following.

I have changed my high pressure power steering pipe on my transit. It comes with a one use nut which I screwed on first as instructed. Fitted it all fine both ends, started the van and poof, the end that pushes into the nut blew out. I have ordered a new nut from the ford garage, but the question is, will the same happen again when I re do it? At £22 a nut I am a bit wary of having to keep buying them.

Ebay has them at a tenner.  However ……. Chinese? After Market? Who knows.

My suspicion is that the recommendation may be to replace not only the nut but the pipe assembly too.

I fear the nut may be the weakest part of the setup.

I thought Sweeny said he replaced the Pipe ?

Thanks for the replies guys. I went to the ford garage in the end as I also suspected the nut might be the weak link. Bought a replacement nut, and it seems to have done the trick.
