2007 Outback 3.0  - Power Steering Whine


Any Subaruists familiar with this issue? I just had a 100K KM service completed and has resulted an annoying whine and stiffness in the wheel which was not really noticed beforehand. Advised if issue persists to have PS fluid replaced/purged/checked for leaks etx  - which was done  - but the issue persists. Any one have any tips?


Thanks, Mike

Replace the clamp on the hose to the power steering pump. The hose is probably hardened causing the clamp to be loose bringing in air to the power steering system making a loud whine! I would just move the clamp down and fit a bolt type clamp on. Can replace the hose as well. But a new clamp should do the trick. Very very  common.
