When on tickover there is a noise of something vibtating under the bonnet but if I pull the steering wheel round and hold it the vibration stops, anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance..

Hi Smidsy
Check power steering fluid level
Check belts to power steering pump
Check drop link arms for any play in joints but doubtful problem if vehicle is not moving
And the list goes on
Could be a number of different faults can you try and localise the noise vibration
Could even be even down to damaged flywheel unable to say without hearing the noise and vibration Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

In addition to what BJS says, there was an issue at one time with one of the hydraulic hoses for the power steering causing vibration because of insecure clipping. and / or routing of the hose. Can't remember offhand whether it was a Series 1 Antara / Captiva thing, try using the search box.
