Steering getting heavy

Got a 2008 croma(194) 2.2 with an electronic steering.

Over the last year its been getting heavier. Need some real effort to turn at slow speeds.

How cld i resolve this?

Re: Steering getting heavy

I'm assuming that since 2005 the 2008 Croma still uses the Electro Hydraulic steering.

If you are detecting a long term progressive decline in steering assistance then it is probably not electrical related (bad, lose, corroded power cable connections etc) but probably a decline in the efficiency of the electric hydraulic fluid pump.

You should however get the electrical connections/cable checked as this is a common issue with older/aging Croma's.

Also worth checking the Vauxhal/GM forums. https://www.vectra-c.com/
