Thread: Power steering problem on 54 plate VTR

    Default Power steering problem on 54 plate VTR

    Hi,

    My 54 plate VTR has developed a power steering issue - When I went to park it one day the steering went juddery and extremely stiff (This had happened once before a few months ago but corrected itself within about 30 mins)- I got it to a Citroen dealership and they said that it had a dying battery and an error code that showed a power steering rack issue - they said I needed both replaced at the cost of 2000! (about the value of the car). In the hope that it was due to not enough power getting to the ECU/steering I got them to change the battery, however, they claim that the error code is still showing. They still have the car and they say it will continue to be intermittent. Has anyone else had experience of this? and if it is the power steering rack is there any way around paying the 1300 that I have been quoted for the part? Any help/advice massively appreciated.

    Cant you test if the electric pump or ecu is faulty then replace the one that is faulty?

    Just seen a used rack with a pump for a vtr for 139 i spoke to my mate and he said its about a 4 hour job for him if you know someone or you get the rack and find your non Citroen garage and sort it that way

    Cheers for your posts - I have ended up taking it to a power steering specialist in Barking who have quoted me 425 + VAT all in for a fitted reconditioned rack with 12 months warranty - hopefully that will be it sorted. thanks again
