Hey everyone, I have an 05 STi, and the power steering pump is on the way out. It leaks a lot of fluid and im looking to replace it. I've read through the rebuild steps and I think I'd like to still get a replacement, and possibly mess with rebuilding the old one at another time. What are my options? Advance, Napa, O'reillys etc didn't have anything listed, I found a couple for the mid 100s range on rock auto, however when I google the part numbers of the ones they list it says excluding STi. Oem is too expensive so a remanufactured etc is what I'm looking for. Does anyone actually have a good source to purchase from or confirmed a rock auto one is compatible for an 05 STi? Please let me know!
I bought a used one off the forums, but it is caked with greasy residue and I'm going to assume the seals are shot in it as well and don't want to replace busted with busted.
Yea I like the salvage idea, the price, and supporting our forum vendors, however I bought a salvage one as I had mentioned, and it looks worse than mine. Also even if the used looks good it may be on the way out soon. Anything like the 150ish priced rock auto one would be sweet. Why just a wrx replacement available? Anyone tried one?
