Knocking Noise On Steering


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have noticed that sometimes when I turn the steering wheel on my 08 220d it makes a slight knocking noise, has anyone else experienced this issue? If so any ideas what it is (my warranty runs out next month !!!)

Many thanks

I had this noise when my car was brand new. Everytime I turn the wheel, it knocks. Specially at low speed turning, sometimes on high speed too. It was very noticeble both in sound and feel though the steering wheel (sound comes from lower part of steering column. I hear the same noise when I push that part). This happens always in summer when its hot outside. My dealer has tried few times to fix this (they reassembled the steering column and lubricated the shaft). it usually goes away after they fixed it but comes back few days later. The weird thing is its gone after 2 years by itself and It never happened again.

Thank you both for your replies, sounds like it may be normal. I have my car in for an MOT yesterday and they didn't highlight it as an issue.

Thanks again

Paul
