make sure it's not low but a bad pump will whine and shit when you turn but still work. I replaced the hoses on my old 7m and it just ended up crapping out anyways after, but you will know feel like armstrong steerin. It's not hard just a pain in the ass bc it can be messy, theirs two hoses and a couple of bolts. but I'd make sure you have the new one before you pull it if your gunna replace it.

If its bad might as well just drive it like that. Easier to turn then without.

If the suction hose is bad and letting air in it will sound like a whining pump tho as well.
