I thought highboost951 was known as the "buggery bandit" in the U.K

the expression you're groping for is 'arse bandit'.

Back on topic,
The groan is caused by air getting into the pump. You should also see some foam in the fluid when the car is making the noise. The air is coming in from the pickup line going to the pump and being pushed through the system.
When the air is pushed through the pressure relief valves inside of the rack it can cause the internal springs to shatter. There is one relief valve for each direction. If one was to shatter it would result in no power assist in only that direction. Please find the leak and take care of it ASAP.
Could be the hose, connections, washers, banjo bolt, crack in tank etc...

Thanks for the ideas, and the entertainment!

Question: I need to be sure to minimize any damage that could be going on right now until I get it fixed. Would cutting the belt be my best bet? I don't have access to a garage and the Monterey Coast is about to get deluged. And it sounds like I'll be needing to order some parts anyway.

I don't mind losing the power assist. I drove a 69 westfalia for years - parallel parking in San Francisco - even while hugely pregnant. I might be silly, but I am strong

Yes, SillyGirl is a real live girl... er woman.

My stepdad gave me this car (bought it new in San Francisco) when my ex and I split and I'm trying to keep it in good shape on my single-mom income. It's been such a trouper, it deserves the best... even thought it's stuck with me!

I've fixed most of the annoying things it came to me with broken: rear hatch shocks, rear defroster, stripped sunroof gears, misc. missing/broken interior pieces, and put in XM radio.

I've done oil changes on this car, lots of stuff on my past collection of aircooled volksies, and rebuilt the top end of my Camaro in high school with my uncle and many cold packs of Bud (and maybe a J or two - hehe). But this car intimidates me a little. Just need good help like this and we'll be good to go.

Now I just need to dig out my Ben Davis coveralls (and remove the vw patch) and get grimy.

Thanks!!!

Update:

Upon close inspection, the braided line from the resevoir to the pump is blue/green corroded and has a number of tiny cracks. Our local podunk auto parts can't even special order the hose, so for now it's sporting a layer of stretch-stick tape. I've gone through the bleeding process twice and the sound is reduced by 50% at least. Hoping a few more rounds will have it sounding much more civilized until I can make the permanent fix.

I'll wait until that happens before I come to you guys with my next little annoyance - the driver's door handle

Thanks for the help! I'm not feeling so Silly now :P

Sillygirl,
For the price of a six pack and a drive to Fresno you could probably get it fixed.

hmmm, never heard of a blue/green power steering line, stock ones are black; sounds like it's been replaced. The usual blue/green line with corrosion is the one going from the brake fluid reservoir going to the clutch master cylinder.

Just buy an updated line. Pelican probably has them. They dont cost that much and are a snap to install.
