Power Steering

Asked by Apr 09, 2009 at 12:08 PM about the 2000 Fiat Punto

Question type: Maintenance & repair

I have a 2000 Mk2 punto and soon after I bought it the Power Steering stopped working, when I was trying to find out how much it would cost to fix, I was told that this is a common problem has it happened to anyone else n if so does it cost a lot to fix?

The fault is in the steering column normally...unfortunately it's a bit of a sod to fix as it's basically a whole new steering column job. It may however be classed as a recall item (I can't honestly remember if it is or not)...if it is a recall then Fiat should do the repair for you F.O.C

hi. i have just had mine into the garage to have a new steering rack fitted after mine just kept dying on me :( . A few things; i took it to a local garage who could do it for me, they changed the ecu and motor on my column. it was even worse, kept pulling to the left (dangerous). So they put the original back on. and to this day fingers crossed it haasnt happened since. This was like a month ago. But i also found out that just unplugging the cables and plugging the back in again works, as it clears any crap that may be on the connections I Hope this helps
