Question about 2005 Audi TT
Hi. I've recently bought a mark 1 2005 Audi tt with 28,000 miles. The steering wheel seems very stiff (for a power steering!). I wonnder whether it might be that the power steering fluid needs topping up - the only problem is I don't know where the reservoir for the power steering fluid is located. I wonder if somebody could advise me
tandard practice to change the oil on a clutch replacement. Was the replacemmiles it's covered, but it's not sounds like the gearbox oil need changing. You don't say how many miles it has done. Gear box oil is not usually changed in a clutch replacement. Did an Audi garage carry out the rlacement? It could be the cable needs adjusting to allow the clutch to have free movement

EPS is activated only when the driver steers the steering wheel, thus reducing energy loss compared with the hydraulics. Its modular design allows for easy assembly. EPS consists of motor, electronic control unit (ECU), torque sensor and steering gear.
Our unique control algorithm allows for improved handling. Compact, light weight. Capable of controlling motors from 25 to 80A. Standardized column integrated or stand alone ECU.Basically its a electrically power steering to assist the driver to turn the steering wheel. Check the electronic control unit(ECU) for any short/burnout and the wiring should be pliable. If not then proper amount of current is not reaching the motor.
The light can light up if there a failure of the motor or any sensor is activated when this circuit has any problem.
Get i checked & repaired from their authorized Dealer and also get a service warranty for the part replaced as per norms out there.
However repair immediately otherwse you might find the steering wheel turning in haphazard manner or it could get locked while driving! .........................................sodeep

Yes there is a hydraulic pump that has fluid in it.
depending on the unit you should be able to have the resivor topped off i would refer to the owners manual maintenance section for clarification it may be simply the hoses them selves are not tight or the seals are not tight and may be getting air in them ok

Check for seized steering joints.Jack up the front end and disconnect the steering box. With the steering box disconnected the wheels should have almost no resistance to turning.
Dont waste time, investigate immediately!!
If a joint is siezed it may snap and cause you to crash.

Testimonial: "It's neither the pump or belt i disconnecting the tie rods and moved the ball joint freely with no play at all which leads me to the rack and pinion "
