    Default Power steering issue

    hello , im new on here so please excuse me if i sound thick.

    Ive got a vectra c 03 plate 2.2 sxi and every morning when i start the car i caqn hear like a scraping and buzzing sound and when i turn the steering left to right the sound changes and i know its coming from the power steering but after the car has warmed up the noise has gone.

    Under the front offside headlight, behind the bumper, between the inner and outer wing. Right sod to get to.

    Cheers for that pal....its a bit of a strange place to have the power steering bottle, im going to check the fluid and let you know in due course.

    i think it might be low on fluid.
