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.
