similar to mercedes,nissan toyota etc, its fairly simple to reseal. The kit will have a couple of gaskets, a shaft seal and some orings. You must be careful when disassembling not to lose any of the vanes and pay attention as to how they are installed. One edge is rounded and one edge is sharply square. Cleanliness is essential.
Hey fellas, okay it's time to go a few more rounds with the car (I've taken a few weeks for a break). My Power Steering pump has a real slow leak through the front behind the pully. Is there a way to rebuild this? As a result of the slow leak, I need to add some ATF fluid. Mobil 1 ATF fluid is compatible, but will it leak more since it is synthetic? Also, even though I haven't looked to the Bentley yet for this, how hard would it be to flush the fluid and replace the filter & fluid?

Thanks,
Scott
