4ws steering rack and pinion (Power steering does not go back to center)

anyway guys, pls help me on my problem. I have Honda prelude 1991 Si 4WS right handed driver.

Here's the problem, when ever i go around a left corner and go to straighten out i have to steer straight again because the wheel doesn't want to come back.

On the other hand, if i go around a right corner and the steering go to straighten out itself without my steer.

I think its something to do with the steering gear box or the worst is the steering rack and pinion is damage..

Please give your thoughts


Thanks
Cheers

Maybe its seized? I heard you can actually lube it up. I'm not too sure. Cause if thats true im definitely lubing mine up once i start driving it

While I'm not good with 4ws, if you think you need parts for it, message Addikt, he's got a 3rd gen 4ws that he may be parting out.

^^ 3G's are mechanical 4WS while 4th & 5th gens are electric.

Does the car throw any 4WS codes?
