I have a 2000 Taurus SE. When I drive through water the power steering goes out. Once the belt drys out it works good. My mechanic says the valance under the car is gone. He says this part keeps the power steering belt dry. He said Ford stopped making this part in 2002 and he can' get one. I can't find anything about this part on line. Does anybody have any suggestions, or do I just not drive when it's raining? Thank you for any help.
