    Creaking steering column

    Hi,

    I've got a 2008 Sportback SE 140TDi. I've noticed that at very low speed i.e. reversing that there is a definate creaking noise from the steering. It is not continuous just as you initially feed in the turn whilst reversing. It is not a loud noise - but it's there.

    Has anybody else experienced this? Just curious - I think I'll get it checked anyway as it's under warranty.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Does it do it on full lock? There is a known issue on A3 steering racks, have a search around for more details.

    Mine makes the noise when I turn the steering, but not on full lock!

    I can live with it.
