I had a completely different car and mine was creaking. That sounded like it was coming from the steering column.I haven't heard it from outside the car but I'm sure it's coming from the steering collum assembly area.
It's already been into audi once, I'm dreading how many times it'll go until it's diagnosed and fixed. They cleaned my haldex filter and thought they fixed itI had a completely different car and mine was creaking. That sounded like it was coming from the steering column.
Turned out mine was the hub assembly.

I've had it in with audi a few times and they've replaced the clock spring assembly. It is doesn't creak anymore but still makes a noise. Seems to do it less when I've left the car a day or two but it's no longer super annoying like the it was. Just going to leave it for now and hope it doesn't get any worse. I didn't notice a relationship between the temp and creakSounds like the steering wheel slip ring, I had this issue on an A6 and three new clock springs later no resolution, sold the car - solved.
I've heard of people on this forums lubing the clock spring but I think this is inadvisable as it contains the airbag wiring (amongst others).
Does the intensity of the clicking worsen with temp fluctuations?
