pulled the pump down.. again and fiddled with the vanes and they still seem to be no different on either side, so i put them back in, but that plate thats held in with th ebig circlip had fallen out which id say was the colpret, i had checked it and checked it..and checked it before putting the pump back together yesterday but it decided to fall out today, so now i have realised why it fell out and made sure the clip was fully inserted and secure and now i have the worlds best power steering pump!! :D
thanks for every ones input over the past week

make sure the one you pick has fluid in it, and no leaks of course, check the back and the front where the shaft goes in for leaks, get an au one as it wouldnt be as old it will probably be a better one
