Find the correct Boots & Gaskets for your car
Power-assisted steering has been one of the best advances in car engineering in recent years. As anyone who has driven a car without power steering will know, it makes a big difference to your driving experience.
When the power steering fails, though, the car's steering can be heavier and less responsive than a car without it in the first place, which can actually be pretty dangerous to drive as it makes the car far more difficult to control.
Often, the problem could be the PAS pump, which uses hydraulics to pump power steering fluid into the unit and help to increase the force applied to turning the wheels. If yours fails, it'll need replacing.
Fortunately, your local Halfords store will stock power steering pumps for almost all makes and models of car.
