Sticky /notchy steering

Recommended Posts

Hi my 2015 mondeo steering sticks after long right hand bends, about 20degree lock and 40 mph roughly. The car had new tyres, cross climates on 16 rims, and was fully tracked. The car had 7500 on clock when I got it and now 13500. A definite improvement on the Bridgestones originally fitted and for having a trackup but not fully resolved and steering still needs a tug now and again. Independent ford dealer has checked and lubricated all swivels etc incl steering column ujs and cannot find the issue . Problem only occurs on right lock but is a bit intermittent so I am suspecting an epas issue. Don't think it's mechanical as on a capri 3l years ago had  similar issue but that was not intermittent and was resolved by lubrication of steering column uj.  Maybe steering angle sensor recalibrate will resolve. Anyone had similar issues and resolved them. 

It's very frustrating as it's a nice car apart from this niggling issue

Have you got lane assist? If so ,switch it off and see if it improves.

No, no lane assistance just bog standard steering - don't  believe in too many bells and whistles as more to go wrong!

the steering angle sensor needs monitoring on diagnostics to see any irregular signal at a particular angle .
