    Angry Power Steering MK5 Astra Diesel

    Guys can someone please help me.

    I put my car in to vauxhall for a service on Thursday and everything was fine however I drove my car yesterday for the first time and i have lost my power steering. When I put my left hand down on the wheel there is a hissing noise coming from behind the wheel. I took it back to VAuxhal but they shut at 12 yesterday and wouldn't entertain me. Been told by Kwick fit that it's not electrical power steering but another garage told me it was. I'm at a loose end and to make things work I'm driving to Paris today to take my daughter to Disneyland.

    If anyone can help or give a diagnosis that will be a great help.

    Cheers

    Phill

    not sure on mk5 but for mk4 the fuse is a large orange or green one on the right hand side beside the strut top mounting in a black box.
