My guess (assuming no trees or rocks jammed in any of the links) would be internal damage to the box - I can't imagine much else (wear or seizing etc) that would permit anti-clockwise movement to left of centre and normal clockwise movement returning, but would then prevent further clockwise movement to the right of centre...

CV joint broken up ?

Did you hear any 'click' or 'clonk' noises from the front end before you lost steering movement ?

Try jacking the front end off the ground, and spin the wheels one at a time. If they freely spin with no movement of the opposite wheel or propshaft, get your spanners out !

You could also disconnect the ball joints at the hubs, and check to see if each hub will turn lock to lock. This at least tells you if the steering box or shaft uj's are at fault.

Yes, cv joint offside started to click, filled it with cv grease immediately, then within couple off miles lost steering movement to right, do you think cv is shot?, clickings gone

I would visit there first if I were you.

The clicking may have gone because the broken bits running around inside the swivel housing are now incased in grease, and stuck in the bottom of the casing. Strip the stub axle off and have a look / feel around for bits.

A very straight forward job to do. Be sure to get hold of a workshop manual first, as you can then see what to expect. You will also need a torque wrench and some gaskets, though you could get by with silicone sealant in place of the gaskets. - opinions are divided.

You also have the benefit of all the knowledge and experience on here to draw from if you are unsure.
