There is a good chance both of you to refer to the same part but use different terminology.

If he replaces the pump, let him replace the belt as well. Usually they replace the liquid every so often and the pump does not die that easily. Maybe you could start with that.

Steering/Suspension/Brakes / Power Steering Pump
« Last Post by Elwood on October 17, 2018, 08:29:59 pm »
It seems that my 2007 2.0 litre diesel hatchback may be needing a new power steering pump. My local and trustworthy garage say that the pump is situated behind some covering and driven by the CAMbelt. If so, it's recommended that the cambelt is renewed, which is fair enough. I, however, thought that the power steering pump was situated amongst the mass of pulleys driven by the AUXILIARY belt in which case, less dismantling is required and only the auxiliary belt would need replacing.

Having looked online for videos about replacing said pump, I can only find American videos. These seem to show the pump being auxiliary belt driven and fairly easy to access.

Enlightenment would be appreciated.

Basically the phone companies have been caught red handed sabotaging old phones but so far there is nothing about car companies. Maybe if people serviced their cars at the dealers, they could sabotage them to sell the new model, but it is a bit extreme.

Vehicle Entertainment / Navigation Systems / Mazda 6 2016 Stereo
« Last Post by matthewgo on October 15, 2018, 07:03:43 pm »
Hello,

I have recently purchased a 2016 Mazda 6 SEL, its such a good car!  I've noticed that the volume on the stereo/speakers doesn't seem to go very loud. When turning the dial the volume will raise until you hit around 30 on the volume marker and then after that it doesn't seem to raise the volume at all.

I have read some other posts which are similar but there doesn't seem to be a fix. If this isnt a issue that can be fixed, has anyone upgraded the systems/speakers?

Thanks all
