Extremely Loose steering column. Not just a little wiggle room, wheel moves up, down farther than normal tilt and left, right so far wheel touches wiper/lights/signal arms.


I believe your steering wheel is coming off take vehicle to dealership asap and don't drive. A screw or something fell out

Why is the steering column moving on my 2007 GL450?


there are probably small plastic lock pins that take up the slack in the column
these break of when a heavy pressure is applied to the wheel either by the drive or in an accident to allow the column to collapse
the fix is a new steering column
check the steering column for failed "U" joints or flexible connections
Take it to an accredited specialist steering shop for a proper diagnosis

Why is the steering making a moaning sound on 1991 volkswagen westfalia ?


Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

Moaning noise in steering column


The probably lubed the intermediat shaft conenction. The loud poping noise could be from them not sitting the boot back correctly. Inspect your boot. As for the moaning noise Only thing I can think of is a hydraulic noise.
