Hi folks,
Not sure if you have a how to on this already, but here is one for you. I did the job tonight in about 20mins, really easy fix if your power steering pump is pushing fluid out of the reservoir cap.

This is a link to the replacement seal on eBay eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161989747487

Tools Needed:

Small "very small" blade screw driver
13mm socket,
3" extension bar,
Ratchet,
Hammer
22mm socket

Firstly undo the 2 M8 (13mm Socket) Bolts holding the Power Steering Pump to the Cylinder Head and pull the pump towards the battery box gently.

Image

Using the small screw driver, pry the seal out of the power steering pump. Be patient with this part, it'll come, go from the outside edge of the rubber and dig it in a bit, take care not to damage the face of the pump.

ImageImage

Place the new seal into position
Image

Press it firmly into place with equal pressure all around and send it home with the 22mm socket and hammer

Image

Refit the pump to the head and tighten both of the bolts

Image

Grab a beer and be proud of yourself now

Good write up. I have the seal sitting waiting to be fitted. I'm off work for a few days and was planning to fit it tomorrow. I have to try and clean out all the old fluid and refill with new oil. Think I will have to fill and drain it a few times to get the old oil out.

I had to do that 1st time, took chubby ages, if you can crack the but on the steer rack bleed everything off that way 1st bud, it's easier

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the B207R available in a number of different model years? Are they all identical?

Can move this to the knowledge base certainly, appears useful.

Power steering pump seals stayed unchanged , it's not a part you can get from Saab either. It comes as part of the pump and you have to buy a replacement pump if yours is weeping. Such a simple and easy and cost effective fix too.
