was your steering pump noisy when you turned? I'm thinking about replacing mine too

If the pump is noisy under load, it's most likely a stuck pressure relief valve. A cavitating pump will always make some noise, but more so under load.

It wasn't noise, it didn't assist.

I've now clocked almost 30,000kms on this car and although I'm extremely busy and havnt had time to do anything extraordinary with the car, I've almost fixed all of the cars flaws.

I think I'm going to keep it one more year and pass it along at the end of next summer. Someone will end up with a very nice, clean and honest MK3 GTI.

The to do list is very small, the goal is to dress is up in the spring and have it looking good for summer before goodbye.
