  9. Drivetrain (Mk4 Mondeo)
    There seems to be a strange problem with power steering - when I start up my Mondeo and take off, then steering is quite light (as it should be) But when I have driven some miles, then the steering becomes heavy. Even at low speeds. E.g. when maneuvering to parking space, the steering is too...
