Re: Power Steering Issue (Stiff to turn)
This isn’t going to be a great deal of help, but I thought I’d tell you anyway…
Previously I had a Fiesta 1.6 16v Si (You know the one with the rounded bumpers and circular fog lights), and that had the same problem.
It would suddenly go quite stiff as you were turning, and then light again. Sometimes if you let the steering wheel spin back to centre after doing a sharp turn the wheel would stop turning and the car would continue cornering!
I don’t know what the problem was, because after 90,000 miles of (ab)use it was fit for the scrappy as it had many other problems – I assume this was where it went when I p/x’d it!
