hi people

i have an issue and its driving me mad, i have a 1.8 tdci focus 03 plate, when driving it and trying to turn left slightly, the streeing feels like its getting stuck on something and makes it hard to turn the wheel without a hard turn, its only when you try turning left and there is no issues turning right

Could be the UJ in the steering column is starting to sieze. Would be a cheaper fix than a steering rack if that is the case.

Hi, have a look at this link, if your car is like this, then it will need a new rack, as artscot79 says.

mines like that in video, but after a while it disappears and drive's fine, the garage says they looked at and even had a ford mechanic look and there sayin nothing wrong with any of it, it might just be sticking due to it standing for a while
