An abnormal noise may develop from the power steering pump. This is commonly caused when the air conditioning accumulator is touching the power steering pump. Our technicians tell us that securing the accumulator so it does not touch the pump will correct this concern.

Volvo V50 Problem
Visitor, 2005 Volvo V50, 86,000 mi
The dealership and an auto repair shop both told me to replace the power steering pump. Cost over $1000 each. I did notice the noise stops usually after the vehicle is running sometimes longer. I will need to find someone to secure it per your suggestion.
Noise is alarming. Hope I can find someone to secure problem. Thank you
