    Default Hard steering

    Got an issue with my steering that has developed over the past 3-4 days

    Changed my tyres around and went for a country road drive
    Following day steering very stiff hard and lumpy

    Changed tyres back round last night and still just as bad if any thing getting worse



    Any suggestions

    Is the power steering fluid the correct level?

    Sorry if too late m8 having internet issues at the moment so just got back on, got a second hand one for £40 easy to change aswell, take off front bumper and its self explanatory once you see it just a few 10mm nuts and a 13mm nut to undo, one pipe to slip off and the other was 19mm just use a dish of some kind to catch the fluid thats leaks out. I had three plugs to unplug some may have four but thats about it took 15-20 mins and was done. Remember to fill it back up with fluid before you bolt it back up makes it easier. Mine was getting harder to steer then would cut out completely weird thing was if I unplugged one of the plugs it would kick back in for a short time, but then that stopped working too.

    Filled the pump with fluid and hey presto power steering was back
