If two different mechanics, including a fiat dealer, already put their hands on your car, there is not much that I can say.
This kind of noise are often caused by bad rotor discs or locking up brake pads, I assume that this had been previously checked and fixed .
about the steering rack problem, when the steering rack has troubles the noise is from the steering rack itself and from the front of the car, if you are sure the noise is from wheel check brakes, or, if the noise does not cohincide with braking, check the wheel bearings.
See here on common brake noises, cause and identifying them.
about "fiat would not allow any more work on this problem", that sounds a bit like rubbish, call Fiat in your country (put Fiat in google, then find support/ contact), and ask them about their policies. I do not think from description this has got to do with steering, unless you get the noise only when steering, nyou usually get also vibrations on steering wheel in this case.


If this had been useful do not forget to rate the solution appropriately.

Many thanks

Fiat grande punto gear box problem


I found this on Honest Johns website:
One of the gearsets has slipped slightly down one of the rods. Requires dismantling of the gearbox to fix it, which is expensive, so try to live with it or offload the car.

(Personally, I think offloading a dodgy car is NOT an answer, unless you fess up at the time of sale!)
I would ask the dealer for an estimate, based on the above. Assuming it to be the case!

Solution for cars Exhaust hitting road bumps


It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.
