Hi All,

I have noticed my 147 2005 1.9 jtd is really heavy to turn when reversing, guessing its a power steering problem, any advice or guidance would be most welcome?

TIA Andy

Is it just that you are letting the revs fall below normal idle speed while reversing? They don’t have to drop far before the steering pump can’t keep up and the steering goes heavy, at least that is how it is on mine. I can’t otherwise see why it would be different in reverse to normal driving.

Does the engine maintain normal idle speed when in neutral and is the steering weight then normal?
