Catastrophic Peugeot Failure

Recommended Posts

...and I hate it when that happens. Broke the power steering fitting that goes into the Ram Cylinder (pn 4011.16) because one of the rack bushings had perished. There was no issues with steering, alignment or noise that would have warned me. So, get under there and check out the bushings (pn 4059.07) before they break the pipes (pn 4020.E3 & E3). The pipes can be fabricated but they have double flares at both ends.

I've heard of this failure before so will definitely heed your warning and check mine over...

Curious though - was it leaking oil / oil soaked bushings that caused the failure or Cali heat drying them out?

Hard to tell now as it squirted oil all over and even though it's never need oil added and never drips on the ground,  it was usually wet there.
