Cool Re: Renault Espace - Steering Stiff/No Self-Centering*FIXED*

Hi mate i had same problem on my espace couple of year ago the steering would stiffen up i couldnt even make it round corners.
To cut a long story short i found out from a reno spec that the UJ joint at the bottem of the steering colum near the pedals can seize up from time to time i sprayed mine with penertrating oil and stood turning wheel fro 20min and hay presto! i put some greece round it and never had a problem with it again just a thought.
Currently in neilc1's garage:
