SOURCE: steering is stiff

the problem could be contamination in ps fluid.i would flush the system and replace fluid first .if that does not solve the pronlem you most likely need power steering pump. the steerjng box is very unlikely.

Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

Red this article:

Eventhough the level is right, the fluid might need replacing (every 3~5 years and 50.000-100.000 miles).

You can read how to recognize bad/old fluid here: http://www.hondaclub.com/forum/articles/1492-power-steering-fluid-lifeline-your-steering-system.html

Polo gti battery light wont start


Sounds like your alternator is not working, if you can get the engine running and have access to a volt meter check the voltage on the battery terminals, With the engine running you should see in excess of 13V

My power steering was fine then suddenly it started to go stiff and then a slight whine when turning the wheel. refilled the power steering fluid, it took a whole 1 litre jug and was fine for a few...


It should like you may have a leak if it took a whole litre. Once you fix the leak you may also find the power steering pump still makes noise. This can be repaired by replacing the pump. I hope this helps.

I went to reverse my car off the drive and my steering wheel has gone totally stiff and the battery light came on although has since gone off the steering wheel will not turn???


Check to make sure your alternator belt hasnt snapped, the same belt usually drives the power steering.

Hope this helps

If its in 4WD thats normal. On hard, dry, pavement its binding up because the front wheels and the rear wheels are turning at different speeds.
