My steering wheel doesn't let me turn right. It becomes tight and I have to turn with all my strength. My belt is tight and its full of power steering fluid. What else could be wrong?

Hello,

It sounds like the steering rack has gone out and needs to be replaced. Here is a video to show you what you are in for when doing the job.

Not the same car and its a box but you get the idea of what it do.

Check out the diagrams (Below) of how it is done on your car

Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Cheers, Ken
