SOURCE: How do I change a headlamp on an Alfa MiTo

They just twist out. Use pliers if you have to. And yes, some just don't want to come out. Plus there is an O ring seal. These get stuck.Spray a bit of lube in it. makes it easier out and back in. Keep the bulb clean though.

I30 2016 model.Bought December steering is stiff - sticky above 60 mph making small direction changes difficult to acheive. It is fine at lower speeds

take it back in for a steering module check
the hyundai I 30 elantra has a recall ( 2015) for loss of power steering due to a loss of steering assistance from an electrical power steering fault
There is a control module that applies full assistance at low speeds , parking or cornering but reduces the assistance effort at speeds where assistance is not really required
from your description, it indicates that the control module is not functioning correctly and so you are advised to take it back in for a recall check or a warranty check on the system

I have a 1994 Cadillac DeVille and it has a very loud whining noise which seems to getting louder. I've been told it is the power steering unit and not to worry about it. Don't you think it is advisable...

Yes. I would check the fluid level and belt tightness and perhaps change the belt. Also see if you are losing fluid at the pump or steering box. The noise might be air in the lines or from low hydraulic pressure if you hear it more while turning. If the noise persists have a second opinion or just change the pump to give yourself a margin of safety.

When I turn steering i get a graon from the power steering reservoir

Hi. Check the Power Steering fluid level. Usually you will be hearing a groan if the fluid level is low. If fluid is normal then you still getting the groan, i advised you to check the power steering mechanism. It could be the bearing inside that is having the problem.
