hey guys, i have a little problem with my steering on the ea. At times when parking and so on it tightens up the power has just dropped away. But it dosnt do it all the time. Just some of the time, i thought it might be a rack problem but then it would be tight all the time right?? Ive heard this is a pretty common problem, has anyone else had this problem?? Thanks

Re: steering

make sure your power steer belt is tight - its the one closesst to the front of the car - they dont always make noise when they slip and if it slips you loose assistance.

Re: steering

Get your rack checked out.
I put in a new one at 120000k, the best thing i ever did.

Also check the bearing at the bottom of the steering column - they are known to collapse and tighten up the steering (mine did!).
