Hi Guys,

 

I have a VW with a clicking noise, like a spring being pulled while the steering wheel is being turned.  been into VW for the 6th time and was told that this is normal. they have relubed, replace the spring and the noise is still back after 1-2 weeks

 

is this normal? or what could be wrong?

 

 


every day wont be the same after you make a wrong decision.

Clockspring aka rotary switch kaput liao.

 

Request for replacement if still under warranty, else wait until airbag sign comes up.

My car although not vw but had this sound before. Did a steering fluid flush and it was gone.

 

Check your steering fluid. It should be red in colour, if turned black it's time for a change.

Did you feel as though you losing control of the steering wheel when going over a hump and even if stationery, when u do a slight turn left or right of the steering, u hear the sound?  If yes, better get a 2nd opinion to check.  I recently encountered it and after checking with 2 mechanics, i was informed that the bar holding the wheel axis had broken or to that extend.  Had to replace it.  But my car was 8 years old already

Hey keithchue,

This is an old thread, I'm just curious if u ever managed to get the clicking noise resolved? I have the same intermittent clicks when turning at slow speeds. Noise coming from steering column below dashboard. VW as well.

Hi Crashburner,

Just to check. Do you have any idea what's the parts that you change? Because I got exactly the same issue and so far 3-4 workshop can't diagnose it
