2006 S60 2.5T AWD - Steering wheel is very difficult to turn when moving after driving for 1/2 hour or so. Power steering works fine when started first thing in the morning and when parked. When driving down the road I can feel resistance when I start to move the wheel left or right, and it struggles to return to center after making a turn.

I am thinking the rack might be OK since it is not exhibiting issues when cold, but I am not sure where to begin. p/s pump? fluid? belt maybe? No noticeable noise from the pump. Outer tie rods are new within the last year.

Stumped.

UPDATE - turned out to be the upper strut mount bearing on the driver's side. It was in really rough shape once I got it removed...
