Honda CR-V 2.2 CDTI 2009 I'm having some real problems with my steering at the moment the steering feels bit tight and the steering wheel pulsates (kick back) in the opposite direction when I'm turning the wheel, especially on roundabouts or full lock

After talking to different people the suggested the power steering pump or steering rack may be at fault. I now have a new power steering pump and new steering rack, with no joy as I still have the problem
Does anyone have a clue to what the problem is

Make sure belt and tensioner are good as recommended replacement is 60,000 then see if you can bleed air from system. Make sure there is no oil on belt as well as having proper tire pressure. Fiill power steering then turn to lock one way hold for 30 seconds then go other way do the same. Do this 5 times in a row check fluid level. Do this at idle.

Unless you have something binding in the front end would be the only cause. We don't have Honda crv diesels in U.S. So we wouldn't have any tsb's available on it to check. That is the about the only thing I can think of. If it's your old rack and was rebuilt then maybe one of the shafts are bent or maybe a subframe problem like loose or cracked.
