Question about 1998 Audi Cabriolet
I have hasd 6 power steering pumps on my car and they all keep blowing
You might want to do a thorough power steering system flush....usually big dealers have the proper equipment to do so versus small shops or aftermarket shops. They pour a cleaner into the system, run the car while syphoning and refilling spontaniously. The reason your pump is going is probably having metallic debris floating around from your previously damaged pumps OR its being starved of proper lubrication OR the air is not being thoroughly bled out of the power steering system.

Do you have the right power steering fluid? Audi uses a proprietary fluid that is not compatible with "normal" power steering fluid (it's called "pentosin"). If you are using standard fluid, it can take out both the pump and the rack as well. If you're at all unsure, you should flush the power steering system out and put in fresh pentosin steering fluid (available at the dealership or online).
