SOURCE: POWER STEERING

First off, verify that the power steering reservoir has the right amount of fluid and that it looks clean (not dirty brown or black). If so, try burping the reservoir to get any air out. Just start the car with the cap off and turn the wheel lock to lock, back and forth several times. This will force any air out of the system. If the fluid is low, top it off and take a drive to see if it's cured. If the fluid is filthy, use a turkey baster to **** out as much as you can, refill it with new fluid, burp the system again to circulate the fluid, and repeat the drain and refill procedure - do it a few times to try and get as much of the old stuff out as you can.

If you still have a problem, you should inspect (or have inspected) the rack and pinion, power steering pump and pressure lines, and also the bushings in your front suspension, as well as the inner and outer tie rods - any of those could cause the problem you're having.

Golf5 GTI steering wheel is hard why?


if your steering wheel is hard do you mean its hard to turn it? If that is the case locate your power steering fluid bottle under the bottle it sits close to the water bottle resevoir and see if you have enough power steering fluid in. If by chance you have enough in then your next step will be to locate the power steering pressure switch and look if its damaged by chance.

Very hard to turn steering wheel


Um... the video didn't demonstrate anything, only showed the steering wheel and the key.

If the engine is running, the tires aren't jammed against solid objects, there's no noise from the pump, the belt is tight, the power steering reservoir is full of fluid, and the steering wheel is still very hard to turn... then I suspect that the power steering pump has simply worn out badly and needs to be replaced.

Turn car off - Remove power steering cap, and turn streering wheel hard right or left and fluid should pour out (cover surroundings with rags.) If so, check your power steering pump.

Power steering probloms


Check for low power steering fluid. If the Fluid is at the proper level. "DO NOT OVERFILL". Then Check that the Power Steering Pump is working. Is the Serpentine Belt On the Pump Pulley? When you start the engine does the pulley spin? DO NOT TOUCH IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING!!!
Do you get any Weird Noises when you turn the steering wheel?

I am focusing on the Power Steering Pump because if the pump is working properly there really isn't much else that could cause hard steering.

Good Luck.

Steering wheel hard to turn; power steering fluid is full


Hi,
Intermittent hard power steering, at the begining of the turn of the steering wheel, once disturbed past the hard part, works normal.
Had fluid change, I notice a sensor, on the control block tower of the rack, is this at fault ? thanks buckleyeng.

Steering wheel jumps along with clanking noise when wheel is turned hard.


jack up the front wheels one at a time, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right or left and turn the wheel by hand. i think you have a bad u-joint behind the front wheel(s). if you have a bad u-joint then the wheels won't turn smoothly.

good luck
