    See www.audiworld.com and www.tyresmoke.net (do a search on steering racks) and you will find a great many posts about faulty steering racks; which Audi appear to be aware of!

    Hi Jimmy,

    This is a special Audi undocumented feature. I had the issue on my A4 Cab (2003) and they tried to resolve it by fitting 2 new racks. There is a modified part available which fixes it, the noise is caused by faulty valves in the rack. I was assured by Audi that there was no chance of it failing.

    Jon.
