    hi bloopeta howz u.... the steering on the astra g is part electric part hydraulic first thing to do is check the reservoir at rear of engine bay towards the n/s (green in colour if memory serves me right) if low top up..next check steering rack boots for leakage of fluid.. and finaly have power steering motor on column.. if you take it to a dealer they will check it through for you
