Evenin' all! The present Mrs C. texted me at work today to say the CR-V was making a whining noise like it was reversing - but when going forwards. Also, the steering felt heavy. She researched it online and power steering problem seemed likely so she checked the fluid reservoir and sure enough, it was below the minimum line. Picked up a litre on my way home (bit of a detour but it has to be Honda fluid, we discovered) and when I checked under the beast (car, not wife!) there was a slow leak from where the vertical hose at the rear of the engine bay joins the metal pipe coming from (or going to?) the reservoir. Then the heavens opened ..... so it's an early start for me in the morning to do a temporary patch of some sort on the leak so I can top up the reservoir and use the car to commute (better me than she). Seems I will need to replace that section of hose, as the end where it's leaking looks a bit ropey. Anyone know if I'll have to drain all the fluid or part of it - or can I just wing it and catch the inevitable spillage? Do I have to use a Honda part or do other mfrs do them? As always, any advice gratefully received.
