SOURCE: How do I change the power steering pump? My hands

You must ffirst remove the passenger tire and the splash guard behind it. Its just a few screws. You will then be able to see the power steering pump. Remove the belt followed by the power steering pump hose. The pump is held in place by three screws. Remove them and put the new pump on in its place. It may be easier to install the hoses before mounting the pump. thats the tricky part. Its not hard to do at all, but you will be working in a cramped space. Put your belt on, your splash guard and tire. Now fill w/ ATF not power steering fluid (why? because the owners manual says so... don"t believe check for yourself..) Finally, start the engine and turn the wheel from left to right (all the way) about five times both ways. this works the fluid in. No need to bleed. Check the resevoir and you willl notice less. continue to add turn thw wheel until its stops dropping. Job done

My Citroen Xsara Picasso has major issues. Was driving fine but then heard what sounds like electrical sparks from right side of steering column. Any ideas?

If the vehicle has tilt steering, it could be a pinched harness at the pivot point in the column. Otherwise check for big fuses located in plastic box close to battery( inner fender well. Should be a 60 amp or 40 amp. Check every fuse in the box while your there.

Citoen xsara keeps cutting out

Have the fuel filter changed most likely cure.
If not it could be numerous problems from fuel pumps to injectors, coil packs,spark plugs air filters etc
Try the fuel filter first if it isn't cured get a diagnostic check done by a garage.
Note petrol and diesel can have different causes also the fuel filter on a diesel is not a diy job.
