Using the power mechanism in the Mini steering system, reduces the energy required to apply on the steering wheels. The power mode is made possible only with the Mini steering pump. As the Mini power steering pump is a mechanical device, it must be connected to the engine in some way. For this, a pulley and a belt is used which links the engine and the pump. The Mini steering pump is otherwise known as the hydraulic steering pump or the rotatory vane pump. As these names suggests, the Mini steering pump involves a hydraulic fluid and a pair of retractable vanes.
The hydraulic fluid is let from the Mini steering pump to the Mini steering gear box. The function of the hydraulics is to ease the turning of the wheels. If the steering wheel of the Mini car is turned, there is a gap or vane produced in steering shaft through which the fluid flows. As the fluid passes through the small vanes, it rushes with a heavy force producing a high pressure in it. This helps in power steering.
The hydraulic fluids used in the Mini car steering pump must be refilled with a fresh fluid, for every 40,000 miles of the vehicle's running. Also if there is an abnormal sound or if any leakage is sensed in your factory fitted Mini steering pump, it must be replaced with the original equipment (OEM) and aftermarket parts. Most of the high quality parts available in the global markets are costlier. But from Car Parts Warehouse, you can bag the most affordable high quality Mini steering pump.
