Help Help with156 JTD needed.

Since yesterday afternoon my power steering (or so it seems) has started to whine when I turn the steering wheel and now it seems my steering is (for want of a better word) clonking on full lock. I've checked the fluid level and that seems fine. Anyone any ideas what it may be? I am a female so please do not be too technical and I've only owned the car a short time and as of yet I've not got my owners manual through. Thanks Jude

Not entirely sure but usually the squealing is the belt slipping, the clonking...not sure unless it's reached the end of it's travel and is kinda "ratcheting".....get someone to have a look at it

Re: Help with156 JTD needed.

It may be that the pump has come loose. That would reduce the tension (making the belt squeal) and cause kickback at full lock. Happened on my last car; one of the bolts sheared, leaving the pump hanging on by one rapidly bending bolt...... Simple enough to fix if this is the problem.
