    Check that the wheels are not catching on the bodywork as they are turned. they can foul at the rear of the wheel arch.

    If they are OK jack both wheels off the ground the knock the track rod end ball joints out from the uprights but leave them connected to the track rods so that the wheels are no longer connected to the steering rack, then turn the steering wheel to feel to the tight spot. You should then be able to work out what the problem is.

    No sure about the brakes but anything is possible with enough determination!
