Firstly, be aware that springs can kill you. They have tons of force, enough to support your car, and if released can seriously damage or kill you.

So, being careful. Look for spring alignment. If the spring were to be rotated and thereby not correctly seated, it gets unevenly loaded and shifts form time to time. This shift can make quite a loud noise.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5.

Hard steering


It is normal for a car without power steering to be difficult to turn the wheels when the car is stationary or at very low speeds. Once you are moving above say 10 mph the steering should be fairly easy.

Play in stering linkage


The most common of all problems in a steering system is excessive steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worn ball sockets, worn idler arm, or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Typically, you shou Id not be able to turn the steering wheel more than 1 1/ 2 inches without causing the front wheels to move. If the steering wheel rotates excessively, a serious steering problem exists.

An effective way to check for play in the steering linkage or rack-and-pinion mechanism is by the dry-park test. With the full weight of the vehicle on the front wheels, have someone move the steering wheel from side to side while you examine the steering system for looseness. Start your inspection at the steering column shaft and work your way to the tie-rod ends. Ensure that the movement of one component causes an equal amount of movement of the adjoining component.

Watch for ball studs that wiggle in their sockets. With a rack-and-pinion steering system, squeeze the rubber boots and feel the inner tie rod to detect wear. If the tie rod moves sideways in relation to the rack, the socket is worn and should be replaced.

Another way of inspecting the steering system involves moving the steering components and front wheel BY HAND. With the steering wheel locked, raise the vehicle and place it on jack stands. Then force the front wheels right and left while checking for component looseness.

"I turned my steering wheel full lock bout 15 times while stationary in drive. to try and get some potential air out of the rack."

What made you suspect there was air in there to begin with? Air only gets in if fluid has leaked out, and a leak is a serious matter. Follow the instructions in your vehicle handbook and check the power steering fluid level.
"The car is fairly new, only about 8 months old."

So it's still under warranty. Don't waste time with this if there's evidence of a potential problem, get the dealer to check any faults.

"could this have potentially damaged something?"


It won't have done the tyres any favours, but you'd be unlucky if you've done this on one occasion and suffered damage to anything else. Regular stationary steering causes excessive tyre wear and can delaminate the tread blocks from the tyre carcase.

"Heck, most people have to stationary steer several times when parallel parking right?"

Ummm, no. Not unless they were taught to drive by an idiot or have picked up bad habits since then. There's a vast difference between steering when the wheels are moving, even at the very slow speeds involved during parallel parking, and stationary steering.

"Shouldnt cars be designed to handle this? Especially new cars? Especially a new honda for that matter? I understand that it is generally not advisably to do this but considering the hell a lot of people put their cars through I thought tuning the steering wheel would have been nothing!"

Nothing has happened to your car, has it? Otherwise I'm sure that you'd have mentioned it. So stop panicking and don't worry. Don't do it again and treat what your friend says with caution in future.

None of what I've said is intended to upset or offend, but occasionally I just like to answer in a lighthearted style. The advice is sincere even if you don't care for the style of delivery. ;-)

OK, the Power steering is designed mainly to assist you, not to provide the maximum pressure available for prolonged periods of time. There are actually instructions in almost every automotive manual stating to never turn to the extreme right or left & hold it there as excessive pressure can damage the system seals & such.

If you've been fortunate, your "test" didn't do any substantial damage. The tires do put a significant amount of strain on the system sitting still, this also puts extra wear on those other parts that move as well but yes, in parking & other circumstances a vehicle does undergo similar pressure circumstances. I would suggest that you never hold over to the left or right & limit any steering where the wheels aren't at least moving a small amount. Even in parallel parking, when you are turning the wheel you are generally moving backwards or forwards at least a small amount and that relieves a significant amount of pressure on the system.

good luck

Can stationary steering damage a brand new car?


The power steering pump pumps fluid through the power steering rack or gear box assembly. when you move the steering wheel the fluids pressure helps you to turn the wheel by puhing on one side of the rack or the other. You can turn the wheel asmany times as you want with it stationary and nothing will happen.

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.
