The Meriva has a known fault with the electronic power steering rack which causes some weird other issues.
The replacement part and labour is expensive - I had one and the price in the UK was around £1200 for the repair.
Thankfully we had a media push in this country and the pressure made General Motors (Vauxhall/Opel/Chevrolet) do the fix for free, try calling your nearest dealer and see if they'll do this for you Meriva 02 09 Power Steering Problems

The power steering pump could need to replaced, or it could be a just a matter of replacing seals and rebuilding the pump. Cost will vary according to what work must be done, and I recommend that you get at least two estimates before you commit to repairs. You can drive the van without power steering for as long as your arms can stand it. BillB
Check the autozone.com website and register the car. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The information regarding the procedures for changing the power steering pump should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.
your serpentine drive belt could be slipping over your power steering pump. Sounds like a premature failure from your pump. This is not an easy fix depending on the location of the pump itself. Remove your serpentine belt, locate the pump and pulley. Try to spin the pulley by hand. If there is alot of tension, your pump may need replacing. If not, try replacing the belt and check your belt tensioner for looseness.
