Question about 2001 Daewoo Nubira
Gents/Ladies, my diesel Peugeot 205 makes a grinding sound on full lock (both ways), & I would like to know what is causing this. I shall try as best as possible to list the symptoms. Firstly, the car has PAS & has done 75000 miles. Apart from the noise it is in fairly good condition & there is no undue or odd wear on the tyres & the car behaves as it should through bends & over bumps - no wander or obvious clunks. The noise only appears when full lock is applied & it is possible to keep turning the steering wheel even though full lock has been reached! Vibration can be felt at this point. A rudimentary examination of the roadwheels revealed no undue fore/aft movement & turning them by hand was noise free. Jacking up the car & turning the steering throughout its full travel saw no improvement either. My main questions to you Gents/Ladies, are: Why doesn't the steering 'stop' at full lock? Could it be play in the track rod ends & steering rack? Or could it be worn outer CV joints causing the racket? Or both? Or something I haven't thought of? The power steering fluid is topped up & the car got a new MOT last month. No gaiters are split & there is no evidence of grease/fluid loss. I don't really want to drive the car until I know whether this could be dangerous. Thanks, Boo.
May be the slip joint in the steering column is slipping in a rotational way stick your head under the dash and turn the wheel and watch the slip joint in the column if the lower part stops but the top part keeps moving get a new/ second hand stearing collum
