Default 03 Turbo Power Steering Pump

Today I was changing out the power steering fluid using a flavor injector and the needle that was on the end of the injector came off and went into the reservoir. Is there a screen in the 03 turbo power steering pump reservoir to keep it from traveling around so that it doesn't screw up the power steering pump ? Or do I have to pull the pump to get it out ?

I haven't noticed a screen in mine, don, BUT if you have one of the extendable magnets on a stick, you might try that first. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you.

I have one, but the needle is not magnetic. I just looked into the reservoir and I can see it. Going to get either a long needle nose pliers or I believe they call them a claw pickup tool

Yes,

There is a flat 2x2 inch square screen that sits over the return port.

I just took this photo of the one in my spare turbo power steering pump. You can see part of it. But understand, that screen is on the return side. I don't know if there anything on the pump intake side.




PS: That turbo reservoir is a $200 part. And they are hard to find at salvage yards too. Be careful with yours.

If you know someone that works in the medical field, you could ask them if they have a long nosed pair of hemostats. I've used those over the years to reach into small places and pull things out. I have a pair of the short ones, but my long ones disappeared years ago. I had an "acquaintance" that was a pot head and I'm pretty sure he grabbed them one day while I wasn't looking.

Just put a piece of duct tape on a stick.

Solved my problem Gentlemen, went to parts store and picked up a claw pickup tool. Thanks for the suggestions.

Missing the drain stopper in your sink or shower

You just need to use toothpaste with a flip cap that stays attached to the tube
