AUDI 80 B2 80 VetteReplacing Pwr Steering Componets

Preparing to undertake the replacement of all the original parts in the (1980L82automatic) power steering system(valvecylinderpump and hoses). Anyone that might have some tipssuggestions or common problems i might encounter your input would be appreciated. Thanks

Questions 1) How is the steering now 2) Why do you want to replace it (leaks performance just age) There is nothing wrong with refreshing the PS system. But if your only problem is some leakage why not just fix the leaks...at least until you experience a functional problem with the PS system If you decide to repairreplace it first decide if you need to have your steering box rebuilt (or not). If you

My primary mission was to rebuild the front suspension but decided to address this leak since

Although you didnt clearly state it you seem to be saying that the stock system is operating OK but it has a leak. That being the case AND since the components are off the car anyway you should perform inexpensive rebuilds of the control valve and the seals at the piston end of the assist cylinder. In addition I would HIGHLY recommend that you replace the hydraulic hoses that is usually the source

I have another tip for you - do NOT overtighten the hose connections to the valve you can easily crack the valve casting. I had a leaking valve on a brand new steering system when I bought my 80 a few years ago and tracked it down to the problem described above.

AUDI A4 B5 Temperature effects Power Steering noise problem

Ive searched few topics about this incident already in this forum came out with no result. seems like people just added some power steering fluid to solve it problem is that it maeks noise since yesterday night. it was perfectly fine in that morning. whenever i steer it makes whaoring noise.. i have got my powering steering fluid swaped and changed at the dealership about a month and a half ago. so

My rack is making the buzzing noise I just replaced some hoses and stopped all the leaks. I bled the system in attempt to get rid of the noise. but it makes this noise when the car is cold and i dont mean 13degrees cold i mean like Los Angeles 80 degreees cold. It subsides as the car warms up. I have checked fluid levels fixed leaks nothing is leaking from anywhere or even oily anymore. I even took it the shop and it stopped making the noise for five min. I just cranked my stereo

Smaller engines dont necessarily mean less luxury. Buyers craving a prestige badge have never had it so good. Luxury brands are increasingly chasing volume at the expense of exclusivity bringing in new cheaper models designed to tempt people to make the leap from mainstream to prestige motoring. Until now most of the attention has been focused on small hatches and compact SUVs but the latest pricing

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 BMW 335ix Coupe vs. Audi A5

Since BMW North America has decided that I cant buy the Sport seats and a heated steering wheel together (the Sport Package is going away the only way to get Sport seats is to buy the M Sport Package and that precludes the heated steering wheel) Ive decided to look at other options. One that caught my eye is the audi A5. Has anyone here looked at it given it a test drive How does it compare--both pluses and minuses--to the BMW 335ix Coupe

When I was shopping for a car last year I tested out A4 S4 and S5. I didnt test out A5 but Ill share my impression New audi cars have needlessly complicated electronics. And I love tech toys in cars... The nav system is not as intuitive as BMWs. Too many buttons are required to navigate through the screen. And fan speed and seat heaters have to be adjusted using nav screen. For example when you turn

or a downhill be ready for some plowing and its not fun. the VW engine also has less power though id say its engine was a little smoother. Its setup so that probably up to about 60mph it feels more or less the same as the BMW but it loses steam over 80-85mph. You have a lot more power left over with the BMW engine. I personally dont mind the tradeoff the N20n26 is not an unsmooth engine the audi

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Audi A4 or E46 330

If you had to choose between the two which would you and why. Might get a second car been looking at audis. I could used some info on audi good or bad. Thanks for the help.

of the A4 was nice and it was extremely practical it was boring. It sucked down gas as if it was 400horses and not nearly as fun to drive. When I traded in my A4 for my Zhp 5 years ago I had a smile from ear to ear. I missed the driving experience a BMW had to offer. That and my Zhp got better gas mileage with about 75 more horsepower than the A4. This is 14 right on. If you needwant the AWD the audi

BMW SERIES 5 E60 E61 Audi A6 4.2 or 535xi or 550i

I am trying to decide between these three cars. The BMW residuals are higher but their MF is also higher. If I bail early from a lease the lower residual is a plus. Also the audi seems to drive better than either BMW and feels better built. THe 5 interior simply ffels cheap in comparison. Am I missing something since I have always been a BMW fan

I own a 2006 audi A6 4.2 AND a 2008 BMW 535 Xit. Up until last year I had driven audis exclusively since the mid 80s. Obviously I liked the cars. When it came time last year to trade in my 1996 A6 wagon I ended up going to BMW because I got pissed off at the local dealer here because they were not interested in helping me get a new car via ED. So off I went to BMW and they were happy to explain the

FORD F150 Shaker 1000 05 Mustang Sound System Swap

Wow is all I can say the bass on this thing is not annoying and I can still breathe hear the treble etc just fine. I love this system the best sounding to date and its stock Its a 1295 option on the new mustangs am really interested in putting this in my truck. They looked to be about 10 subs (2) in the trunk and would like some more info. The headunit is easily swappable what else is included in this

1200 they take you for not even close. also I remember reading somewhere that you can get an adapter that lets you control aftermarket headunits with the steering controls if I remember its around 80.00 try crutchfield No probs I probably wasnt clear enough. Ive been REALLY impressed by the shaker 1000 but like you said a complete aftermarket system will still kill it. Id LOVE to replace my OEM audiophile

KIA SPORTAGE III Aftermarket Sound System Questions - Non Nav

Hey all First time poster with a few questions regarding audio. Ive purchased the 2011 Sportage with Non-NavNo Premium audio. Since I have the non nav edition I am assuming there is no factory amp for the speakers Basically Im looking to replace all factory speakers and add a sub while keeping the stock headunit. In doing so I will be adding two amps (4ch for doors 1ch for sub). I plan to splice the

the factory headunit. If your goal is to replace the factory headunit and purchasing an after market one that has more control over frequencies with aux outs and pushes 50x4 watts or more then you would probably be able to get away with not amping the doors in that setup. I want to keep stock look and steering wheel controls etc so I stayed stock. Very pleased and happy so far I love Polk audio

AUDI A4 B5 First cold morning start this year

So I got in my car for work this morning and started er up. Could hear the belt chirpin a little. When I first turned the wheel I got vibration (da da da da da) Kinda stuttering in the column as well as little squeaks. As long as I have had this car the steering has been sticky sometimes on slow neutral turns. I know this rack problem is common but just wondering if its acting up in the cold is a warning that its gonna seize up

is a joke if you ask me) and then give it a fresh top off of new fluid.... when I fisrt bought my car my steering was super stiff and then i found out that i was super low on ps fluid when I filled it up to the max line my steering became effortless... as far as my front end squeak it was from all this hot dry weather...plus the car is 10 years old...fo I did new upper and lower control arms and 80%

MERCEDES BENZ CLK I 208 2001 CLK430 Audio Upgrade....

Also im looking at putting a double din head unit in so after ideas for that too Thanks

I swapped head units. I kept my steering wheel controls... expensive is relatively I think it cost me 80. Ill admit my steering wheel controls are a bit flakey though. I probably need to crack it open and look for a loose wire but it works just well enough that Im too lazy to do so. The only problem I had was the wiring pattern on the harness crutchfield sent me was messed up. Specifically the ignition
