    It might sound daft but the creaking might be the radiator mounting bushes, there is a bit of an issue with them. Are the front tyers inflated correctly if they are a lot underinflated that might make the steering heavy, the loss of oil unless it was compleatly dry should not make the car feel heavy.

    hi

    i have checked with vx about the radiator mounting bushes they have been done but i was advised by vx to change the anti-roll links cos they are creaking badly so i got them done but the car is still creaking but over the past few days the cars handling has become awful and the steering feels heaver than normal i have check the power steering fulid and it seems to be full to the top. the strange thing is i have no waring on the dash to indicate that their is a problem but i did notice a while back that their was a leak on the power steering rack i did take to a garage and they said it was not a mayor issue but they did advise that change the seal on rack.

    thanx guyz for the reply much appreciated
