POLL: who has had their power steering pump replaced?

so guys and girls, who has? The reason i ask is because i replaced the one on my EA a few months ago and now the one on my new EF is leaking and giving me the shits, so it's obviously a fairly common problem.

i wouldn get one from a wrecker cos I remember someone sayin a while ago it cost them $100 or sumpin like that - at least with a reco one you get a warranty - the wrecked one could die a month later or whatever.....

Never had to replace mine yet...though the p/s does tend to shudder at low speed. I put some additive (Bitron) in and it seemed to help a bit for a while. Is this a symptom that means mine is going to need replacing soon?

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
