I have a worrying intermittent problem where the steering seems to stick whilst turning at low speed.
It initially sounded like a PAS failure, but it happened very rarely and only when my kids were driving. They just said it got very heavy and then released.
However it happened to me yesterday. When going round a slow speed corner, or parking with a lot of lock on it sticks, and a lot of force is necessary to push past it. It felt like either the steering lock was interfeering with the column, or the indicator self cancelling was jamming. There is suddenly a high resistence to turning, and when you turn harder or reverse the turn it releases.
Anybody had this before, what is it?
