Check the motor mounts & transaxle mounts

All three will have failed

Flush the power steering fluid every 3 years, at the
same time, when you should be doing the transmission
fluid, also

SOURCE: Squeak and slight vibration heard and felt in steering column at low speeds (Parking lots, etc)

Get a friend to turn wheel back and forth in the garage, get on the ground and use your hands to feel where the noise is coming from. Metal gives off a significant amount of vibrations with noise. Should be easy to tell where it's coming from. Could be your rack and pinion, however I would be much more willing to consider ball joints. Hard to tell without getting "down and dirty" on the floor under the vehicle feeling for the noise.

Could be your steering gearbox, tierod end, rack and pinion piston, low power steering fluid, bad serp belt, ball joints, front struts/mounting hardware.

Also test steering with the entire vehicle on the floor and with the front end off the ground lifted by a few floor jacks lifting on the frame of the vehicle.

Ball joints especially on Ford vehicles tend to squeak after a while (mostly since they are the sealed type) even if they pass a safety inspection.

SOURCE: steering wheel squeaking

they do that sometimes...Usually if you take some silicone spray and squirt it all around the area where you can hear the squeak,it will go away.

Front end noise


Squeaking CV Axle bearings... Bad CV axles are expected to click but they can also on rare occasions squeak... I know because I had that experience with a 1984 Sentra when doing a U or close turn only. Other parts that could theorically squeak at low speed, and depending on the condition and brake pad material.. would be warped disks or glazed brake pads... but at low turning speed, the CV Axle is more likely.

I want to know if it is dangerous to drive with a squeeky clock spring in my van


Yes its risky. Dont drive with that noise from clock spring.Its indication of its failure.
I believe this is the "clockspring" -- the electrical cable inside the steering column that connects your steering-wheel-mounted electrical controls to the rest of the car. ("Controls" used be just the horn.) The cable wraps around the steering column so it can turn with the steering wheel. Sometimes it starts to rub and squeak.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion, and have a clunking noise in my front end. It only occurs when I apply the breaks at a slow speed, usually when turning around in a driveway or parkinglot. I dont hear the noise...


I have a 2006 Mazda 6 wagon - same car under the skin as your fusion. If you have a telescoping steering wheel, it might be that the grease they used for the steering column is substandard. I just fixed my clunky steering by releasing the telescoping/tilt lever and pushing the steering wheel in and out a few times (i repeated twice after 2 short test drives with the problem improving each time); this eliminated the noise. Blogs for the Mazda 6 indicated this. Give it a try as it's a free fix. If the problem comes back, and some indicate it will, the dealer may need to relubricate the steering column with a better grease. This is the fix for the Mazda6.

My steering column is make loud squeking noises.


The rubber "boot" at the firewall is chafing on the steering shaft. Spray shaft with silicone lube, then turn the steering wheel back & forth to work lube in. May require occasional re application.
