Have a rubbing noise in steering. Especially when turning slow or backing an turning to the left. I had this same issue in a previous chevy truck


When you turn at low speed you most likely had your foot on the brake. As such, you are loading up the front suspension i.e. weight shifted to the front. Backing up at low speed has the same effect of loading up the front suspension. Your front tires contact patch to the pavement also increase in area -- think about the tire is less round but more flat surface touching the pavement.
In both cases (low speed/foot on the brake and backing up), they put more stress on the steering and thus the steering pump.

Hopeful fixes:
1) check tire pressure of both front wheels especially the sound occurred more often when turning left than right. The correct tire pressure when cold reduces the resistance from turning the steering wheel
2) check and/or replace steering pump belt(s). When they are worn out, they became inefficient in helping the steering pump to provide needed pressure to assist steering. Now the steering pump has to work 'harder' to provide the needed assistance to the steering

3) your steering pump is wearing out. Not totally dead yet. In cold days, the steering fluid is 'thick' --think viscosity. It is less efficient in circulate the pump. As such, a 'weak' pump has to work harder to make the thick fluid to circulate (to provide steering pressure). Mechanics refer to this cold days steering noise as "Morning Sickness". You can try to mitigate the problem by changing the steering fluid. You might need to change it a few times before the fluid in the entire system is purged and completely replaced.

Hopefully, inflating the tires to the correct cold temperate; changing the belts and/or complete steering fluid flush could solve your problem. They are all much less expensive than replacing the steering pump.

Changed power steering pump and it is hard to turn


Sounds like your steering gear box may be the culprit rather than the pump. What were the original symptoms?

The bulbs in my rear brakes keep blowing. Vauxhall Corsa


Make sure its the correct bulbs.Then you have to back probe the circuit to determine where the short is. If its not the correct bulbs issue, then I recommend you test the brake switch on the brake pedal before going any further with this diagnosis.

Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right


This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.

CORSA B STEERING FAULT ( VAUXHAL/OPEl)


you could have a bent suspension arm or a tracking problem i would recomend you get these things checked first
if thats all fine i would go to your local brakers yard and get an electric power steering pump and fit it yourself
they are located on the steering column at the top and can be seen if you pull off the trim panel on the right
they are only held in by a couple of bolts
