    Had the vehicle into Hyundai. The seem to think it is the brake booster. I'm having it replaced. I'll let ya know if it solves the issue. When I put the brake on & turning the wheel, it will make the rubbing / chirping noise. I hope it works! Many seem to have this issue, but no real resolutions.

    Brake booster did not solve issue. Back to Hyundai as the "fluttering/chirping/rubbing noise continues. Why would I hear a sound when I brake the vehicle to between 20-10 km. hour? I sometimes here it when I turn the wheel to the right at slower speeds as well. The sound seems to originate under the dash on the drivers side and can not be heard under the hood? Power steering? ABS?

    i'd make sure they check the drivers side wheel mounting ,brake assembly ans suspension especially the top of the spring mount good luck let me know how it turns out

    Definitely was not the brake booster! lol Hyundai Woodstock seems to guess at solutions. How did they diagnose? They said, well it seems to make sense since it is the only thing under the area where the sound SEEMED to be coming from! Ouch. Not going back there for any repair work!

Omg worn out rotors will not make your steering wheel make rubbing noises. Some ppl should just read and not write. There is a rubber boot that your steering shaft goes through on the fire wall .sometimes it dries out .if you lube it with silicone paste .not petroleum might it from inside the car.under dash .or it might be clock spring .or rotary coupler in steering wheel. You might just try to lube .the hen if it don't work take to dealer.if it don't help.

SOURCE: hyundai tucson makes sqeeking noise inthe steering

are you able to duplicate the noise standing still?
if so it is most likely the clockspring contacts that are rubbing together.

SOURCE: Whining noise at low speed

If the noise happens when car is in park and you rev it to about 1500rpm's then its thebearing in the oil pump of the torque converter.It should make noise all the time even in park ideling. You may need a rebuild transmission. Have the vehicle checked out at a transmission repair shop

SOURCE: Noise coming from front of car

It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

SOURCE: play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment

When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.

Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

I have a 94 ford mustang. I hear a bad "rubbing noise" in the front end and also a whine from the power steering pump. The steering seems to be ok, but people are telling me i need a new power steering...

It sounds like you need to replace it or you can get your power steering pump flushed out and give that a try. As for the rubbing noise I need more info. What are you doing to make it do that noise? Do you know where in the front?

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel

this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

Noise coming from the front end of my 2003 dodge durango

You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive. If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.

2000 outback AT reverse gear grind/grunt

i would inspect the trans mount it may be bent,reverse is a big strain on the drivetrain and if it's not aligned properly this could be your problem,look for the post on the cross member that has arubber bushing on the bottom,if it's not centered its hitting the mount as for the steering column noise i'm thinking this noise maybe the clock spring this is part of the air bag system,the spring can be weak and in turn rubs on casing causing noise, believe it or not the engine noise your describing is a normal operating noise!
