    Default No Power Steering-You wouldnt believe it..

    Ive got a 2006 Vectra 1.8 vvti and ive been having bother with the power steering, It would stop working and go heavy, then if you switched the engine off and started it again then the steering would work again.
    Anyway today was different it stopped working altogether, checked fluid level and all plugs going into the pump all seemed ok, checked fuses again all ok, then i came across this (see pic) A nut missing, now ive had this car almost 3 years and this must of been missing all that time... Put a new nut on and power steering is working ok again...
    Ive put this thread on so if anybody else has steering problems then this is something to check.. This is located next to the battery...
