Driving home this morning, power steering quite suddenly packed in (while going round a roundabout of all places). No previous problems noticed - ie no sign of steering getting increasingly heavy - and no warning light coming on.
Wrestled it home, checked the fuse, checked for signs of leaking PAS fluid - nothing. Tried switching off and starting up again a few times, just to see if it was some electrical glitch that might reset itself - no improvement.
Looking back through previous threads on this it seems that the power steering pump might have gone - but I'd be surprised if it had failed so suddenly with no prior indication of anything amiss. Has anyone out there had a similar problem and found that it was indeed pump failure?
Any advice gratefully received!
