Intermittent heavy steering

I have a standard 106 GTI and I have a weird and frustrating problem; My steering will sometimes become noticably stiffer/heavier in all situations irrelevant of weather or speed. I have had the pump changed for a second hand one and initially I thought it did the trick but apparently not. It can become heavy for a few hours/a few days/a week and then in between be fine and feel good with nice feel. There is no noise accompanying it. I have had a lot of work done on replacing most of the bushes/mounts/drop links and new front shocks too.

I'm wondering what other parts relating to the steering could be causing this. The rack doesnt show any play but I'm tempted to replace it but my mechanic says because it's intermittent it's more likely to be electrical? I'm going to take it back again but just thought I'd see if anyone has any bright ideas?!!

I'll post this in the suspension section too

Cheers

Your mechanic is probably right. Check the connections on the pump and grounds to the chasis.
