If you have hydraulic steering, might be damaged components or low fluid if you have the dreaded electric steering, also could be a failing component Either way, have it checked immediately (despite a 2 year response).

I hear a growling noise in the steering wheel every time I turn a corner, back up and turn the wheel, or turn into a parking space. Most of the time it is when I turn the wheel to the left. All fluids have...


Yes. Hi. the plastic trim around the base of the steering wheel and the steering column have an imperfection in one area that causes them to rub in a certain spot every time, are out of place slightly or are for some other reason making contact and creating a noise. Get right down there and turn the wheel and look for a rub. When you spot it use a sharp razor blade knife to trim it a wee bit. J.
or, you have an issue with the steering shaft somewhere.

Steering problem


Your power steering engine/ pully has gone bad. needs a replacement then.

Take care and do fix it on time before you get the steering rack damaged.

Good luck.

Popping noise


Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
