[Steering & Suspension] steering wheel vibration
#1
OK  so turning lock to lock 10 times - twice - cured the strange vibration ... but I'm still curious as to why the problem occured right after the MOT test ... rolling road issue??   Does anybody know Is it electric power steering, electric pump hydraulic system or engine driven hydraulic pump?

I experienced this problem, as I understand it you aren't supposed to turn the wheels full lock with the ignition off (from the wheels) or the electronic steering loses its calibration. Turning on the ignition and moving the steering full lock several times will allow the position sensors to recalibrate.

I'm having the same problem as of yesterday. The steering wheel vibrates, mostly when I turn right. After reading Bigians reply, I think the reason could really be turning the steering wheel with the engine off, because I did that yesterday when cleaning it, though I only turned it about half a turn not full lock. I just spoke to a Citroen mechanic and he confirmed that that could be the reason and turning it full lock to lock a couple times could be the solution.

Quite normal if you turn the wheels without pump running, I put a clutch in one today & it was like it, will go off in a day or so.

I seemed to have had this problem after changing front break pads. Strange vibration - definately when turning left.
This happened before, after having my break fluid changed at citroen.
Problem disappeared after a couple of journeys.

Maybe stating the obvious, but have you checked the steering fluid level ?
Best luck.

Electric power steering, so no fluid or pump.

So nobody could be bothered to look at the links then........

This is normal when the wheels are off the ground and turned without engine running, like what would happen on an MOT or any other front suspension work.

The fix is to raise the front, run engine while turning steering lock to lock. OR just drive as normal and find a few corners.......

Or park on gravel then do full locks with engine running

or place cardboard under the wheels so you don't scrub the tyres and then do full locks with engine running
