Clio self steering (DANGEROUS HELP) **Fixed**

Hi, first of all i must stress it's not like a tracking issue

This first happened a few months ago. I was going around a left turn, then the car felt as though I'd hit the kerb and the car turned right while I had the steering wheel in left position. I thought oops I'm a bad driver lol, anyways from then on for about a week the steering was light like the car is not adjusting to the speed as it electric assisted power steering but sorted its self out after a week so thought nothing of it just one of them things.

Then today my partner was driving with our 1yo in car. Going round a right long turn the car throwing wheel left so partner counter steers and so on long story short Nearly had a head on crash and also ditch with the road been wet

Has anyone got any ideas as just throwing money at this will cost more then cars worth

Also this is a complete electric system no fluid

Could it have broken a spring they usually brake at the bottom be careful
putting any fingers in there they can be like razors.

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

Get it to a garage that can perform a full diagnostic on the steering system.

Not one of those IMO that you can fiddle with and hope, ditches and other traffic will get in the way.
