2003 Mini Cooper S 4 Cyl 1.6L
Steering & Suspension
WHY DOES THE STEERING STIFFEN AND WANT TO LOCK UP AFTER ABOUT 10 MIN.
REPLACED RACK & PINION BECAUSE VEHICLE WAS HIT IN FRONT AND ALSO DAMAGED INNER TIE ROD
sounds like the power steering pump needs replaced, i have a mini and while driving it the steering would lock up where it was real hard to turn. i had power steering pump replaced.
