Morning all - thought I'd introduce myself as the new(ish) owner of a 2000 Arnage RL.

Very happy with the car (6.8l), especially now it's been valeted!

I'm very slow on Bentleys so you'll have to bear with me on technical jargon for the moment.

The car is dark blue (looks black) with the cream interior and has the 19's off the 'T'....

Only problemo to date, leak from the power steering hose...is this common and easily resolved?

Thanks for listening!

Great to have you join us JCB, hope you'll stick around.

I'm sure if anyone has had a similar problem with their power steering hose they'll be willing to pitch in with a suggestion.

Welcome aboard.

On the older cars (SY, SZ) the power steering hoses going to the cooler (above the radiator) tend to leak. They're easy to replace (and not very critical as they're on the low-pressure side).

The high-pressure side hoses might still be easy, but the parts are a lot more expensive.

Not sure how all that maps to a 2000 model year.

Jeff.

Hey guys - thanks for the responses. I've had a new hose clip sorted and it stemmed the leak somewhat, but it's still there (but only a small amount compared to what it was).
