    If you can get it plugged into a "Lexia" diagnostic computer it'll usually offer good signs of the root cause. Where in Sydney are you, and is the car under any warranty?

    It's electric power steering and there can be a number of problems, but they usually result in an intermittent loss of assistance, noise or odd oscillations of the steering wheel. Beyond checking the fuses and making sure the wiring harness is OK, particularly the multiplug in the engine bay, it's really a dealer job. If it needs a rack or a steering ECU, sit down before hearing the price. The ECU's are not VIN-coded, so a used one could easily be used, but there are variations in both the ECU's and racks depending on the model.
