You can replace the gaitors and track rod ends. On older racks you could fit shims to the rack to tighten up the free play. However on modern racks you need to take of the rack to recondition it. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Could be the power steering pump. Could be the rack and pinion. If you have power assist, then this where I would start. Electrical and such.

Fairly typical for a Punto. What sort of failure is it, ie. is it the power steering light coming on? Loss of power steering? etc

Steering symbol has come on on dashboard, and now steering is stiff


fiat puntos have electronic power steering if you remove the fuse panel on the drivers side you will see the fuses you will see a motor that is the power steering motor connected to that its got its own ecu most of the time they do fail heres where its located. 2ca79614-3c3d-43e5-a5ef-5b2bd7beb512.jpg

2006 fiat grande punto road/suspension & brake noise


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
