    Hi Guys,
    new to the forun.

    i have just got a 2003 S3 bam, the power steerings seems heavy when parking.
    is this normal? if not any ideas.

    thanks mark

    Steering is a little heavier on S3's than other VAGs as it has a quick rack... do you get a groaning noise when you are on full lock? if so check the fluid levels... common point for leaks is the pipework that runs in front of the sump/gearbox from the power steering pump...
