Steering Issue


Recommended Posts


This is my first time so be gentle.

For a couple of months i have been having a steering issue where it is light on the Right and heavy on the Left.

The issues is intermittent, but its starting to become more persistent.

To give you a bit of history and details its a Ford Focus MK2 05 Plate 80,000 miles

When I first got it in 2011 it had to have its Left Bearing replaced as the car was shaking over 60MPH.

In 2013 i had to have the Left bearing replaced again as it had cracked (May have been due to off road driving in scotland)

Last year I had to have my suspension replaced on the front left, but got both front wheels done

This year it has passed its MoT without any issues.

Kwik-Fit are saying that its likely a power steering issue which I know are common faults with the MK2.

What are your thoughts?

it could be as simple as the tracking or balance thats affecting the movement. Likewise, it could be the lower wishbone rubbers are cracked and damaged and cause it to wander.
