I strongly suspect that the pump is at fault,although you quite often find that the steering gets worse gradually,as the pump wears.

Is the steering heavy all the time,or just when the car is stationary(engine idling)?.If you rev the engine up,does the steering get any lighter?

A second hand pump would be around £30-£40,a new one probably double that.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
