Leaking power steering coolant pipe

Recommended Posts

Hello, my 525D LCI has developed a leak in the power steering coolant pipe ( the aluminium pipe which runs in front of the rads at the bottom)

Any suggestions on whether it's possible to by pass the pipe?

Thanks Tony

yes it is possible as its on the low pressure return side, if its on a straight or not too tightly curved section you could cut the damaged section out and slip some flexible hose over, will need to be oil resistant stuff obviously.

looks like replacements aren't too expensive (would need to double check your vehicle details to be certain that is correct)
