Power steering question

Recommended Posts

Just a quickie here. Mates got an identical 1.6 petrol Focus to me. Recently his steering has gone very heavy then weirdly light and floaty. Could dirty fluid cause this, or could it be early signs of a leak. There does seem to be a bit of pump noise but not 100% sure.

Oh also he says he’s worried about his clutch. Not feeling like it did a few years ago, and gears are notchy and downshifting doesn’t produce a noticeable slow down like it used to. Cars done 70k but all town driving so could be due replacement?
