Check the gasket and seals for leaks, and the moving parts for wear. Get a garage to renew leaking seals or replace a worn or damaged steering box.

A steering box check involves raising the front of the car but keeping its weight on the wheels, and getting underneath it while a helper turns the wheels a short way.

The safest way of doing this is to drive on to a set of ramps — unless you can get access to a proper inspection pit.

If you have to use ramps, be sure they rest on a level surface and are directly under the wheels.
