I have a power steering fluid leak in my 2001 VW Golf. Both the dealer & a local shop told me I needed to replace the pump & the tie rod. A third opinion suggested only replacing the pump b/c that’s what’s leaking. Does this make sense, i.e. only replacing the pump or should I expect to have to replace the tie rod down the road? The repairs for a pump/tie rod replacement exceed the value of the car.
Sincerely appreciate your thoughts/helps.
