Post Re: power steering

Hi there, I have a 2004 Kangoo, and it has a Electric power steering pump. It is located just behind the front bumper. I took it out, applied 12 volts and it worked. Then I found the 80 amp fuse in the engine bay which was gone. Replaced it. But I was brave and took the motor apart, and found all kinds of MUCK in it. Cleaned it all out, armature where the brushes sit was very dirty.... The challenge was to put the motor back together, since it is a sealed unit. I asked my welder friend to spot weld. Hooray !!! it works like a charm. BELIEVE ME IT IS NOT DIFFICULT IF YOU HAVE A MECHANIC FRIEND... Have a go.... Or you pay for another Pump ????
