I have Passat CC R-line 2012 and having a problem of hard steering and couple of lights on dashboard.

Description is as below.

Everything was fine couple of weeks back. However, I changed lower arm bushes and all 4 tyres and thought to go for alignment which makes everything worst.

1. Steering wheel is now hard and need a force to rotate.
2. Steering functions stopped working such as steering buttons. Airbag and steering light popped up (Both in yellow color)

Today I changed a clock spring - Now steering functions are working fine. However, two new lights popped up (Tyre Pressure and ESP both in yellow color)

Current Problems:
Problem 1: Steering Wheel is still hard. However, while driving it is little better but not as before. Before it was too smooth.
Problem 2: 4 lights on dashboard and all are in yellow color (airbag, steering, tyre pressure, ESP)

You help to understand problems will be highly appreciated.

yes, they have pulled the steering wheel to centre. However, I have changed the clock spring and the hard steering issue still persist.

Today, I felt that while driving the steering wheel is little soft. Once the vehicle is stationary or slow, the steering wheel required a lot of power to rotate.

Let me find VCDS scan. I am from Dubai and here everything is very costly. I am not sure where to start.
I went to another garage and they said due to bad alignment steering motor is now not making pressure. We might need to change steering rack.

Just now I called to one professional garage and they said better visit VW and diagnose the issues first.

My question to you is it a possibility due to non collaborated slip ring the steering is hard?
