Afternoon,

I have a Ford Falcon Au Series 3 2002 Model. I have a power steering leak coming from the electrical input at yhe opposite of the pump end of the hose.

i will attach a picture, i have quick disconnect the cable to show were it is. how do i repair this, is it an O ring or what?

the leak is only while engine is running and turning doesnt effect the rate about 1 drop every 2-3 seconds

cheers

Will probably be the actual power steering switch itself leaking oil/fluid. Fit replacement using thread sealant/tape on the thread of the new switch. New switches can be bought on ebay for around $30 upto $100 for a genuine ford replacement.

Keep a eye on oil level - do not allow the pump to run dry

Shouldn't need pipe tape, there is already an O ring.
You need to mod a 14mm open ender to fit.
