    PAS Noise

    Hello,

    I've noticed a few threads with this problem but no definitive answers so just wanted some clarification. My power steering makes a whining noise when i turn the wheel lasts about 3 seconds can also hear it at low revs when driving. Thought it was the fluids so got it drained and went out and bought the proper stuff from VX to go in, but still the same noise. I have noticed the steering seems to be slightly light at times, well different from when i first bought it.

    The car is a Enjoy Astra Mk4 54 plate so is a electric pump, the lights slightly dim when i turn the wheel but i don't think that is related, and the only modification's i have done is a new head unit.

    Many Thanks
    Kind Regards,

    Dean

    are we talking about when it's on full lock or just ANY turning of the wheel whatsoever?

    If full lock then mine does it. My dad's Mondeo does it quite loudly & he asked a mechanic who said it was normal

    If we're not talking full lock, then pass.

    Turn the wheel say over a quarter than you will hear it, full lock the noise will last a little longer. It could be nothing just a noisy pump maybe, the steering as I said feels light but is still responsive. I just thought it was heavier than what it is now.
