Sounds like you are talking about the 'Steering coupling' as Chevronics call it

Though that won't have any influence on the steering being powered or not.

I think you seriously need to consider taking the car to someone who knows what they are doing with it, the garage it is currently at don't seem to have a clue.

I managed to get a pair for under £10 delivered recently - the same part is used on many Pugs too by the look of it although they may need a slight mod to fit -

They do tend to pull apart over time especially if soaked in leaking oil and / or the steering is starting to get stiff and is tugged over time!

Does sound like you need a mechanic / garage with Citroen knowledge - these aren't big problems really just need the right experience to repair properly.
