Only Haynes I have is for the pfl/mfl cars,but would suppose steering system stayed the same in which case Haynes give a figure of 1.3 litres.

Pump and steering gear fundamentally the same across the range, so it's probably a fair estimate  :y

Could be Albsiemers, but where is the PAS cooler ?  Don't remember ever encountering such a thing.  ???

I think the cooling is achieved by the pipes running across the front of the car infront of the radiator, I certainly didn't find a discrete oil cooler when I was changing my PAS pipes.

It took me less than a litre to refill the system, btw.

Yes I'd guess that the 1.3L figure is for a totally empty system to full.How much you'd lose changing the pump I don't know as I've never had to do one.

This...

It's no more complicated than it needs to be, although it can render the system prone to leaking from corrosion...
