Sounds like your relay under the bonnet has gone im fraid, not too hard to change. if this is not the cause then the problem might be a little more difficult to sort out as this will prob be the power steering motor and is a bit of a swine to change.

    if this is just a simple relay then i would say back street joe as they only cost about 4-5 GBP. if its a pump then prob same but as i say these are a little more expensive and a lot harder to do yourself. so overall unless its to do with your full service history or you have more money than you know what to do with then yeah local guy all day. also very useful to shop around and use dealers prices against each other especially as we are in critical financial crisis. hope this helps ya?

Why would my steering wheel lock up when i was backing up?

Check your power steering fluid to see if it is low. Also look to see if it looks like the belt is slipping. You may have a power steering pump that is failing.

Vw fox 06 my headlights flicker when i move the wheel why?

Do they just dim a bit? If so, you're probably noticing the reduction in voltage from the engine belt being asked to drive the power steering pump. The engine belt also turns the alternator, which isn't getting as much power from the belt that's now doing 2 jobs. You don't notice this when you're driving because the engine RPMs are higher and the voltage from the alternator is constant. When you're stopped the engine RPMs will drop a bit and so does the voltage available for the lights. You can test this by revving the engine when you are stopped (be sure you are in neutral) and turning the wheel. You shouldn't see the light's flicker when you have the revs up. Let me know if that was the issue.

You have probably lost you Serpinteen belt, Best not run it for too long or it will over heat too and give you even bigger problems because the water pump is run off of that belt too.

This is the 3rd time this wk my battery light came on accompanied by the loss of power steering.the 1st 2 times were brief,however this time the car had also overheated and now when i attempt to drive the...

It sounds like you have a fan belt slipping Check the condition of your belt,or belts. If the belt appears old, and weather cracked, it should be replaced. If the belt is slipping, you would temporarity lose power steering, and the water pump would stop pumping coolant causing the engine to overheat.

Now toremove power streeing pump


See Figures 2, 3 and 4
  1. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  2. Disconnect the feed and return hoses from the power steering pump, then drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.

On models equipped with a remote fluid reservoir, disconnect and plug the hose(s) in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
  1. Remove the drive belt from the pulley.
  2. Install a puller tool such as J-25034, or equivalent onto the power steering pump pulley. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut counterclockwise in order to press the drive pulley from the pump.

When installing the puller tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.

  1. On most models, it may be necessary to unplug the electrical connection from the A/C compressor, unfasten the compressor mounting bolts and set the compressor to one side without disconnecting the lines.
  2. If equipped, unfasten the power steering filler tube bolt and remove the filler tube.
  3. Remove the rear brace retainers and the brace.
  4. Remove the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts and then remove the pump from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle and secure using the front retaining bolts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) 2.2L engines. (50 Nm). On 4.3L engines tighten the bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  2. If equipped, install the rear brace and tighten the retainers to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) on 1994-98 2.2L engines. On 1999 2.2L engines, tighten the brace retainers to 37 ft. lbs. On 1994 4.3L models tighten the retainers to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). On 1995-99 4.3L models, tighten the retainers to 31 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the A/C compressor.
  4. If removed, install the filler tube and its retainer. Tighten the retainer to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  5. Use a pulley installer such as J-25033 or equivalent to press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut clockwise in order to press the drive pulley onto the pump. Check that the pulley is flush within 0.010 in. (0.25mm) of the shaft end.
