So a Holden kit is the same? So that means they have the same power steering system? What year would I want it for? (which holden range)

Hi folks, I'm keen to keep my car away from mechanics as often as possible. My PS box is leaking like a sive, and i 'think' its out the pressure switch. Does anyone know if you have to replace the whole switch, or just a seal? And if the problem could be something else common?

Cheers.

i had same problem twice leaking pressure switch, and it has to be replaced. or i just plugged it up and bridged the wires, and no more leaks and no more problems. it is only there to boost up your revs while turning the wheels at idle. they usualy leak out of the back or connection.

i think it is a 10mm fine thread.

this is a common problem with ford pressure switches!

Thanks, i got a new one and fitted it (what a b**ch of a job), and that also explains why my car gives a rumble when the steering is being worked. Smooth as silk now tho.
