Audi A5 Power Steering Problem – Racks and Pumps

Audi A5 Power Steering SpecialistsThe Audi A5 uses a conventional hydraulic power steering system which consists of a Power Steering Rack, Power Steering Pump and high pressure & low pressure hydraulic pipes which connect them together. The system is linked with a Steering column (shaft) which is what the steering wheel is fixed to at the user-end.

Below we’ve listed some common problems with the power steering components on the Audi A5 and this should hopefully help you better diagnose any faults you’re experiencing and replace the right parts.

Common Audi A5 Power Steering Pump Failures

  • Leaking / Loss of Oil
  • Whining
  • Heavy Steering (Either Way)
  • Loss of Power (When Idling)
  • Loss of Power (When Idling & Whilst Revving)
