Alfa Romeo 156

156 Sele power steering failure

Hmm, I'm in a bit of a jam and wonder if anyone has some bright ideas.

I drove my 156 Selespeed into the work multi storey this morning and as I went up the ramp closest to my parking space the power steering failed. I managed to manhandle the car out of harm's way but now have a dilemma as I am not sure I can get the car out of the multi storey with no power steering to get around the tight corners!

Anyway, what might the issue be and is it fixable on the spot? I noticed the engine was making a funny whining in the multi storey before the steering failed.

All thoughts welcome!

Could be the aux belt failed. (check the belt)
Or a powersteering fluid pipe split (check the fluid level).
