Mitch, I forget your model - I have a 200 and had a 5KT. In both
cases, the hydraulic pump provides the power for the power steering
rack and hydraulic boost for for the brakes. Therefore, that system
supports both steering and brakes. I can't swear to what the
NOTE: If you look at the hoses coming out of your hydraulic pump,
you can easily trace one or more directly to the rack if it's
part of the system - which I think it is. There are three hoses on
the pump: one goes to the rack, one to the pressure accumulator, and
I think the third is a return line from the rack. Memory may be

Can't help you there. One might look into the owner's manual to see if
it specifies which type of Pentosin is correct for the car...not sure
it does but wouldn't be surprised.
BTW - re an earlier question about Pentosin 7.1 and 11 - does anyone
know whether it's OK to use the later type (11) in all applications
including those older ones which specified 7.1? Logic says "yup",
but these are Audis, after all!
