hi i am new to this site and bmw i just got the car last week and was wondering if anyone could tell me where to start looking. my problem is every once and a while the steering gets heavy and does not square up coming out of a corner. does this mean pump straight away or is there a few little things to check first.

Is it more stiff one way than the other?

if the stiffness is only on a left hand lock lets say when straightening up then this will point more towards the rack

well no it about the same its like a sticky feeling just before the centre mark and would that be that the rack has snuffed it or is there anything i can do to fix it

If it's stiff just before centralising the steering wheel then I wouldn't say straight off it's rack or pump, try jacking the front of the car up and try it with the wheels off the floor, also try it with the engine off
