Took the car for it's MOT on Friday, she passed with a few minor advisories. 2 tires will need replacing soon, one within the next 1000 miles and the other within 1500-2000 (I estimate based on tread left) But the surprise was a small leak (weeping) from the power steering pipe. It appears to be coming from the main feed from the pump down to the rack, and is at the join between the lower metal pipe (that goes into the rack) and the rubber hose. I called Holdcroft Honda for a price, as it's a Honda only part it seems... and whilst the rubber hose was only around £15-20... the metal pipe was quoted me at around £240. This close to xmas, I simply don't have that kind of spare cash... one of the downsides to having a car with an MOT that runs out early Dec.. I've got a 600+ mile round trip to do soon, so the tyres are important, especially as I might be going somewhere with ICE/snowy conditions. So I've stuck a post up in the marketplace to see if anyone has the metal pipe I need from a breaker... and I'm gonna have the rubber pipe replaced with a new one and hope that resolves the issue. If it doesn't then I might at least buy myself a few extra weeks needed to save up some extra cash. But seriously.... £240 for a 8-10cm long piece of frickin pipe... that's just f'n disgusting.
