I thought the power steering on mk2 TDCI's was electric? (it is on mine) The only issue i had (just the once) was when i parked up at the kerbside with the wheels on lock, as i tried to pull away the car rolled back so the front tyre was wedged against the kerb... as i tried to turn away from the kerb A red warning light flashed up on my dash, and a warning saying "power steering failure"... Steering went dead heavy!
I switched off the engine, got out, pushed the car away from the kerb, re-started the car, and all was well... It's never happened since.
It seemed fine afterwards but it was really tough to move, is there anywhere I could check to see if there's a problem? I don't get how it went from being completely stiff to absolutely fine in the space of two minutes? Cheers for your help guys, Having just experienced the turbo blow and being stranded, I really don't want that all over again
