Help - Power Assisted Steering System(PAS) DEFENDER 300 TDI

Hi everyone, I have the following question about Power Assisted Steering System on my DEFENDER 110 300 TDI:

If I am out in the wild offroading far away from any village or city and if it happens that either the power steering pump is damaged or the power steering pipes (hoses) are damaged or start leaking will I be able to turn the wheel and drive my Landy until I reach the nearest settlement where I could have help.

Have anyone from you ever been in this or a similar situation and what is your experience?

Every response is appreciated because it will help me to be ready if this occurs to me.

Thank you

You should be able to drive it by using some brute force on the steering wheel... being in movement the wheel will turn just a bit easyer than when you turn it stationary without engine running(hence no PAS) so try that to make an ideea

if you think my english is peculiar it means you didnt hear my japanese

ALL MY ADVICES ARE BASED ON MY OWN KNOWLEDGE AND MY WAY OF UNDERSTANDING THE DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION OF SYSTEMS... I'M NOT A LAND ROVER TRAINED SPECIALIST JUST AN ADDICTED ENTHUSIAST.
