    Default Power stearing air lock ?

    OK, I know the electronic power stearing is a bit odd, and that very occasionally if you nearly stall, it cuts out, but today I had a wierd one.

    Pulling into Tescos, going slowly, and the stearing suddenly stiffened up. OK, turn it off and restart - still rock hard .

    As I went further into the car park, around 400 yrds, it slowly cleared.

    Was fine later when I got back.

    Anyone ever had similar ?

    That's a strange one...

    As far as I remember, it's supposed to be a self-bleeding system...
