Stif steering to one side

Recommended Posts


Just last week the high pressure PAS hose from pump to box has been replaced (200 tdi)

New oil went in (ATF) and I bled the system.

Now the steering to the left is OK, but the steering to the right feels sometimes "stiff" while turning the wheel.

I think I bled the system:

Both front wheels jacked up.

Fluid reservoir opened

steering 20 times from full lock to full lock

Because the old PAS hose collapsed while driving, I had to run the car without PAS (and a dry running pump...) for 4 about minutes before I got home.

Could this have damaged the pump ?

If so, you would expect problems while steering to left AND right.....not just to the right....

Could it be some air that is still inside the system ?

Or.... a seized universal joint because it had to work a bit harder the last 2 miles without PAS ?

Any idea's ??

Thanks !
