is there a write up for this one?

Mine is acting weird for the last few months already. Not sure if it is the bump or the tank or some hoses leaking.

I have the grinding sound from time to time, so i know that my fluid is low. But i have to keep refilling within a month or so. The fluid runs out real fast, i know that is not normal. So what do u guys suggest me to look for?

There are little clamps on the hoses, that tend to go bad. They're annoying and expensive to replace. I'm doing mine, more than likely tomorrow, or early this week. And by me, I mean I'm paying someone to do it (He's a good friend of mine, and works on Audis for a living...I'm getting a PS Pump, all new lines, timing belt, snub mount etc. all for $650).

Anyhow, they're annoying to replace, and I'd do the pump with it, as the pump usually takes a beating when the lines aren't sealed.
