Re: l200 power steering leak

Not that I've ever tried it but I have heard that there is a way of getting a bit more life out of the seals - a few drops of brake fluid in the power steering reservoir apparently causes the seals to swell slightly and more often than not seal the leak (unless of couse the seal is damged rather than worn). Having not tried it I can't confirm or deny but I'm guessing the sealants on the market work in a similar way.
