Steering when you turn the steering wheel in either direction you feel a clunking in the wheel. This does not seem to effect the steering of the vehicle and is less when driving down the road. Thank you for your assistance.

CLUNK IN STEERING SHAFT


Sounds like this vehicle may have had some suspension or accident damage. It needs to be put up on a lift, engine running while someone turns the steering wheel back and forth, a second technician under the vehicle inspecting for where the interference exists when the clunking happens. I don't recommend driving this vehicle.

Clunking noise when turning wheel on my renault megane any ideas what this could be


I would take it in and get your CV joint checked. When they start going bad they make the noise you describe and you can sometimes feel a little catching or surging feeling when turning sharp. Your mechanic can inspect them from underneath and usually tell pretty quick if you have a problem.

Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

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. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

Everytime i turn the steering wheel i hear a loud clunking noise, i know its not the strut mounts, i know both tie rod ends are brand new within the past year plus they dont make a clunking noise like...


clunking noise may be bad steering rack. either the bolts that hold it to the frame may have worked loose,the center of your vehicle is where the steering racks located,just under the center of floorboard.under dash but on floorboard.make sense? try turning the steering wheel with engine running,place your hand under the radio,but on floorboard,when you turn the steering wheel from side to side,do you feel a thump? if so,then your steering racks loose or bad. the only way to know for sure is to have someone who knows about the steering rack to inspect it visually. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu


I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

Is there a way that I can "tighten" up the steering wheel play?


Parts do wear out. Try this: Have a friend help you and have the vehicle on a solid surface (garage floor or better yet ramps) have your friend move the steering wheel back and forth just enough to take up the play (clunk to clunk) then go around to the moving parts and you can feel where the play is. Don't overlook the coupler at the base of the steering column. You don't necessarly need the engine running (Less blood that way) This usually works very good finding where the play is. You may even be able to follow the clunk noise. Let me know how this works for you?
