Tin top related, the FIL's got a 56 pate C Max with 80k on it which and the steering seems unusually heavy. The PAS pump is hydraulic and there's plenty of fluid and no leaks. At low speed the steering is very heavy and as you turn from lock to lock at rest, there's none of the normal pump noise.


The pump's got an electrical connector on it which I suspect may enable the pump to disengage when not required. The handbook doesn't mention a PAS fuse so I don't know what circuit it's on but the fuses all look OK.


Any ideas what to check next?

On my Mondeo it was the pump itself, I tried new fluid, new feed pipe, special leak stop fluid then bought a pump
