Re: Urq leaking power steering pump
Anyone know if the urq uses the same pump as the 4kq/coupes? They sure
look the same. Our urq is at the shop otherwise I could check part numbers
between the 2.
If they are the same, it may be easier and cheaper (at least for me since I
have a couple of 4kq ones laying around) to swap in a good used one.
