Hello and Welcome..
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise..
There have been Volvo recalls for steering issues such as this on your model.. These models have two types of steering mechanisms - both have had their problems and both have been recalled.
Given these facts, I feel the best advice for you is to give your local Volvo dealer a call.. have the cars reg number at the ready ( they may need the VIN also ) .. tell them that you are asking about any steering recalls that have been issued, and whether your car has been recalled or not / subject to the recall - then go from there.
If it is subject to recall and its not been done.. or, it has been done but gone wrong again, any repairs should be FOC to you - so its well worth making that call..
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
-~~~ Meantime ----- Please do click on the Exc / Ok ratings for me at this time.. - Thank you in advance for that -
... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating should you need more at all - it doesn't close you out --
Best Rgds, MIKE.
