    Click on turning the steering wheel (starting to annoy me)

    Hi all not posted for a while, since buying my b6 a year ago ive constantly had a click coming from steering wheel when turning (either way, now I did a b7 wheel retrofit along with cruise and DIS which I assumed would sort it as I was almost certain it was down to slipring, but its not and now its starting to bug me a little, what else could be causing it?

    Does your indicator stalk cancel back out after indicating round a corner then onto a straight?

    If not as stu-m is suggesting it's probably the self cancelling out catch.

    the self canceling can work as normal and still click when steering
