tight on the wheel

Hello Guys,

I noticed it's quite difficult to turn the steering wheel right or left when trying to park or driving at slow speeds.

I checked under the beamer for an indication of power steering fluid leak and no leak.

I have a 02 4.4i. Any idea what may be causing this before I visit the stealership?

Mine seems quite heavy too, and sometimes gets noticably heavier mid-corner.

I've been wondering if the pump is dying but not properly investigated yet. Fluid level is fine and a new rack was fitted last year, a few months before I bought the car.
