    Default power steering on my signum

    hey guys, have owned the car for bout 6 months now, just in the last 3-4 weeks when i start the car im gettin a weird droning/whining noise and only sumtimes followed by momentary loss of power steering. as i said this isnt all the time i could drive it all week and not hear it, then next day....its back. Also while stationary, moving the streeing wheel changes the pitch/noise that it makes. Which makes me think its the steering and im not getting any warning lights either. Any ideas??

    Reservoir is under the offside headlight, tucked away behind the front bumper in the inner wing. And no, it's not a sealed unit.

    yes you can access the power steering fluid, however it is a bit tricky to access.

    I check the fluid levels at least once a year, in 80,000k Ive only topped up once.
