Power Steering - We Think?
Posted 05 September 2011 - 02:50 AM
We have a ford smax 56 plate with 53k on clock. We have had various niggly problems with it but all been solved (one of them being the alarm and wipers going off for no reason).
The latest problem, and the reason it is worrying me is from googling it and realising it could cost up to £2k to fix. Our power steering started sticking/jamming a couple of weeks ago when it was on full lock turning. However it has gradually got worse and is doing it all the time now... any ideas on what it could be? How much it could cost? My hubby seems to think it may need fluid (im hoping that is all it is lol). I think the car is out of warranty now not sure as we bought it 2nd hand 3 years ago.
All help would be gratefully received before i book it into garage and incurr unneccessary costs lol

check for water ingress on all the electrics under the bonnet, could be causing the issues you are experiencing with the wipers and alarm
