When turning the steering wheel it makes a clunking sound 2004 Pontiac any help??

Probably a bad intermediate shaft.

There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published by GM because of this condition.

TSB Reference Number 06-02-35-010
Date Of Issue: May 09 2006
This bulletin involves replacing the intermediate shaft with an updated part.

Updated part number (per the TSB) is GM Part Number 26068295
This is an old TSB - you will probably want to check with your local GM dealer to make sure this part number has not been superceeded.

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.

Clunking noise in steering....

well does your state have the lemon law. in illinois there is a law that states if you bring a vehicle back three or more times and it can't be fixed you are untitled to a new car.

otherwise check the sway bar link pins they can be at fault.

2004 clunking noise thru steering!

Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

Good Luck
