Re: massive steering problem

Fairly obviously - this needs looking at fast

It might be as simple as broken spring which is twisting in it's mount but then recovering when you turn the other way (so it bangs again) .

Get it looked at before it fails completely.

Re: massive steering problem

A broken tooth in the rack perhaps. Extremely rare though...
