I've searched the forum and found that a number of people have had a problem with creaking steering. My 56 A3 with 6000 miles has just started making a faint clunking / clicking every half-turn or so of the steering wheel when moving at low speed. The noise is coming from the nearside front area and everytime it clicks / knocks when turning the steering wheel I can feel the vibrations if I put my hand on the alloy wheel itself or the shock / strut assembley (obviously when stationary and going lock-to-lock with someone else in the car). I haven't really looked at it muh further than that at the moment, maybe it's a CV joint? Maybe it's the rack? Anyone have similar experiences or suggestions? It's booked into the dealers next week anyway.
