    What does it means nothing happens ? but still you are feeling something out of HPS.
    No feedback ?
    Not coming back to its original position after steering the wheel ?

    I will try to find the powers steering fluid but I didn't top or do any wheel rotation since I got the car.
    Earlier, I could just turn it half way to take a sharp turn but now I need to turn it fully. It had a very heavy feel to it but now it feels like the steering on Zen estillo.
    And yes, turning steering half way on straight road does nothing. The Car still goes straight.

    Is there any abnormal noise from steering gear? If yes then problem is in steering pinion gear. OR check for loose coupling of steering pinion near clutch & brake paddle.

    It looks like what is happening is the steering play has increased abnormally. It looks there is no problem with pump or doesn't look like any trapped bubble. Just take it to TASS.
    I think they will be able to fix it.Have a word with a trusted tire alignment mechanic(if you know personally) who will be able to diagnose the problem than a TASS fellow.
    See the link below which looks like describe your problem

    Thanks Guys, I checked the steering fluid and it is neither leaking nor low/high. It is just right. There are no leakages under the car or in the Engine bay either.
    It works perfectly fine when the engine is off, it suddenly turns feather light once the engine is switched on.

    I anyway have an appointment at TASS on Saturday to drop the car off for a suspension check and Clutch Assembly to be replaced. Could the Clutch Assembly have a role to play here?

    Why to replace clutch assembly? Did you face any other problem with the vehicle?

    Rear glass cracked

    Today morning i observed tht the rear glass of my punto is cracked and the film is holding it in place. I am shocked to see this and have no clue how this happened? Can i be due to heavy rain in mumbai over the last two days?
    What will be the cost to get it replaced?

    I am not sure about this, but did you keep your rear glass heater on for a long time? I seriously don't know if glass can crack because you turn the heater on for an extended period. I am just guessing.
