    Default Power Steering noisy? What do you think

    Always had this (18 months now) but after reading a few mentions in a few threads I thought I should ask if this is the norm or not.

    I have a Facelift 2006 SRi NAV 1.8 vvt.

    I video'd the noise as best I could whilst turning the steering left and right.

    Would you say I have a problem or a problem coming?

    I believe I have around 2 months left of my extended warranty I took out (must check that though)

    Cheers for any help

    P.S I promise to be a better member and clean my car, the shuttle tray as well. I have been slacking off recently.

    P.P.S I have had no problems so far or warning lights to do with power steering

    Ekk just realised I may have posted in the wrong section and should be in the trouble shooting section. Sorry Admins, on hands a knees now begging for forgiveness

    Checked the fluid and it seems pretty full up. About two inches from the top.

    Just poped out and dipped a piece of white paper in as it was very hard to tell the colour.

    What came back was a sort of light olive green.

    Power steering pump on way out, ours was louder than that on an 08, if its the pump under the front wing there £660.00 from dealers, very ouch, just traded ours in and got shut. Does it change noise if you turn the wheel? does it feel notchy? loose at high speeds?

    If yes to all these its on its way

    the power steering fluid cap has a little dipstick on it , when i checked mine it looked full but on the little dipstick it was almost not showing and it took just a very small amount i think 3 cap fulls to bring it back up , so it might look full but it can be low , although saying that i can sometimes hear my power steering pump but not as loud as yours on the clip
