Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.
Do you get the same sound if you turn it hard left first?
Hi Mark.I can't say I have noticed it on a hard left turn, simply because to get out of my driveway first thing in the morning, I have to turn right. The car seems to be over steering, when turning either left ot right, it seems to want to steer further than I do. Sometimes the steering is stiff, not super stiff, just a bit harder than normal. When driving on the dual carriageway, there seems to be a bit of drift also.
Check the fluid level for the power steering.
If it needs topped up you MUST use the correct spec oil.
It isn't standard power steering oil.
Checked that. It's fine.
Did you notice what colour the oil was?
No I didn't. I'll pop out and have a look.
Sorry to take so long Mark. It looks brown, but I'm having to use a torch to see it, because it's dark. Do you reckon the fluid needs changed?
It should be green
If it is brown then someone may have topped it up with the wrong oil. Red and green make brown
Ok Mark, thank you for that. Sometimes I wonder why garages cannot do the right thing, after all, they are the experts. Thanks again for the help. I guess I better go to the Audi dealership and get it checked out.
