I have just returned from 2.5k mile European trip in my 2013 Plus 8 and the steering now seems heavier/stiffer around the straight ahead position only freeing up slightly on lock. Also following hot restart after 10/15 minute stop the power assistance disappears completely for 5/6 seconds.Fluid level ok although it does seem rather "dirty." Does anyone have any ideas please ?

Does the pump squeal on full lock?
If not something is wrong.

S4 chassis cars seem not to have the power steering issues of earlier cars, so this could be a one off problem.

As has been said , contact a dealer that has a known competence with Aeros, Williams is one, or the factory.

Our Shogun Pinin used to do that due to slightly loose drive belt. When on full lock power steering assistance is at max pressure with relief valve blowing as it can't push any further.

A new steering rack is on order for my 2014 Speedster. Noise and rattling coming from the rack- the dealer has recommended a replacement.

Thanks for suggestions, I will contact Mark Baldwin at the factory as I don't think my local dealer has much experience of Plus 8's.
