Any idea why my power steering would be heavy?

Seem to notice it more at slow speeds, seems like the wheel doesn't want to return after turning at a junction.

Low tyre pressures / stiff steering rack / power steering pump struggling under load etc .....

If it's the electric version the voltage does drop to about 12.5v on full lock even though it runs at 14v.

New battery sorted it. But then a little later on when stone cold on a frosty morning it would be a little stiff on a left turn for 10 minutes.

Full fluid change and wrapping some thermal material around the pump sorted the issue. Mine was the one under the wheel arch
