Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
I have a 2005 malibu. Clunked for a year and finally lost all steering! Rack and pinion was replaced. solved. The clunk yu here are missing teeth.

Some racks begin to have play between the teeth, common misconceptions are inner or outer ball joints. however this problem does occur in chevy malibu MAXX with ELECTRONIC POWER STEERING.
the intermediate shaft also causes noise in the process both can be checked.

I had experienced the same problem about over 1 year on my Malibu Maxx 2005 (50,000 miles). I found this link from the web:
If you can not find this link, you may try search for this pharse "From inside the vehicle, spray GM Superlube" from Google or others
Here is what I did:
- Bought a bottle Multi-Purpose Lubricant, Superlube (GM Part No. U.S. 12346241, in Canada 10953474). It costed me $12 from a nearby Chevy dealer.
- Opened driver door, sprayed this juice as instruction.
Results: All noises were gone immediately!
Hope this info help!

My 05 had the same problem however it was still covered by the dealer. It was the lower or intermediate drive shaft. It was free for me but it would have been $600.

I had and have a year later the same issue. It was my Intermediate Drive Shaft. Hope this helps.

There was a recall on my 2005 and they replaced something in the steering wheel- no cost and took 20 minutes to do.
