There is quite an annoying delay with servotronic (speed-sensitive power steering). Basically the power boost always come slightly later than I expected.

Is there any way to disable servotronic? I know on Audis you could just simply pull a fuse to disable servotronic modulation.

Thanks.

There is a fuse for it, but you will probably get a ! if you pull it.

Why do you want disable it?

It's speed-sensitive, and is a nice aid when parking, yet cuts off on the highway.

I don't like the over-boosted steering feeling, just thought I'd give it a try.

Do you know which fuse it is?

I think there is a servotronic relay somewhere under the dash but I couldn't find it.

Thanks.

Just found it. It is under the dash, near the steering column, the relay number is 462.

It firms up the low-speed steering quite a lot. I think the steering feel is much better now.

Have you talked to your dealer about the problems you are having?

I have zero-delay. It is a very boat like feeling at very low speeds, but not when you are 40+, at least on my car.

Not yet, but I dont think my servotronic has any problem. Just an experiment.

I quite like the heavier feel now, and there isn't any warning ! on my dashboard at all.
