    Default The mrs has a Picasso xsara.....Help!!

    My mrs has a citroen picasso xsara on a 52 plate and it has started making a vibration through the steering wheel as she turns when stood, ie reverse parking or pulling into a bay when shopping. It seem to be getting louder too! Any ideas what it could be?? Cheers guys!

    As above the fluid level will most probably be low.

    If it's not a spring failure then yes mate... I take it no noise (squeals) on reversing ... If so there could also be a warped rear calliper ....

    Pm me the reg and I'll check the chassis build tomorrow for any known issues on your specific car
