About to take the car for a blast today and noticed power steering fluid all over the driveway again. This is the fifth one i've put in the car in 2 years!!
Does anyone know if i can just put a bolt in place of the switch because this is really P***ing me off!!

I had the same problem with my AU i put a new rack in it and the power steering switch thread was f**k in the rack i didnt notice. Put it all togethor went for a cruise, Going into a car space turned the wheel full lock and the little f**k blew out of the rack. So i got a LPG convertor plug and tapped a new thread in the rack and put the plug in. No leaks and no problems. Had to put a filter in the return line tho couldnt get all the metal out after tapping the thread.
