Power Steering Issue

Recommended Posts

Good Morning everyone so having a strange problem at the moment with the glanza's the power steering. It's quite heavy from a start then when driving it is feeling very light to the point its feeling very unsafe to drive feels like i'm driving on ice any one have any idea what the problem could be ideally i'd like to keep the ps but may have to bin it off. 

cheers nick.

Does this change with speed nick? Thinking it could be alignment out.. 

 

If not then then might be experiencing a similar problem to me, think the rack might be shock and leaking fluid past the seals. Best way to check is to take one of the rack boots off. Mine were wet through inside.

steering gets super light at speed alignment is spot on 0 toe -1.2 camber my rack may be shot tbh fair bit of play in the steering wheel now i think about it.

I know they do make a difference to making the steering heavier and lighter . So one may have split or been damage or popped off if you have done any engine work lately ?

You may have disturbed the pipes when you  undone the starter or the rear bell housing bolt . Worth a check :thumbsup:
