Sounds like either a leak in the power steering box or possibly some pentosin was forced out of the power steering reservoir, which could have happened if the LADs were eliminated.
Went to see a 750 yesterday but when I got to the garage I found a pool of what seemed like thin oil under the front right of the car.
It seemed to have leaked out of the top of the power steering (?) tank.
I wasn't too happy, and the dealer said he just replaced the brake master cylinder.
He also said he'd replaced the self levelling rear suspension with standard shocks.
Could the 'shortening' of the hydrallic system pushed out the oil?
It's not an engine leak, so should I go ahead and buy it then fix it, or should I run away?
I can knock a bit off the price with this leak!
