    More steering issues

    Have noticed a new problem which is gradually getting worse.

    When turning the wheel more than about half a turn, particularly to the right, I get a noticable "groaning/sighing" noise from somewhere up front, espicially noticable at slow speeds ie when pulling onto drive.

    Its only when moving, unlike the creaking noise I get from turning left which happens regardless of moving.

    Anyone had this or any idea whats up?

    I get the same kind of noise when reversing onto my driveway which has a slight gradient, almost sounds like the car is being stretched.

    Just noticed that word is a revised steering rack is available for the creaking symptom. Will go back to dealer with this info and hopefully get it replaced under warrantee to solve both issues...

    Nice sig, Powerplay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I must remember to take more care to listen to mine carefully if there's a warranty solution.
