It could also just need oil.vw4eva wrote:Hi guys. So this last few days my steering is getting jittery and feeling stiff while turning.

Could this be the power steering wheel pump?
The pump and the reservoir is under the LHS headlamp, behind the bumper.
It's also common for the pumps to get knocked and fail, because of where they are positioned on the car. If you pull the front facing part of the LHS wheel moulding you will see the pump properly.
It needs green power steering oil. It's called Pentosin 11S oil.
There are equivalent oils that have the same formula and can be used as a replacement for the Pentosin. Can be bought at Goldwagen, etc.
Do not use ATF or anything else. The pump is expensive and will fail fast if filled with the wrong stuff.
