    Creaking noise from front of car when turning steering wheel - 182

    After I got my car back from being repaired all was well, but recently it has developed a noticable creaking sound when I turn the steering wheel when stationary, and also when pulling off in a straight line.

    It is not the knocking problem of the suspension tops it is something different.

    It doesn't seem to be altering the performance of the car in any way and I cannot get my head around what is causing it.

    Yeah, I mean it wasn't doing it before the accident, so was wondering if anyone knew what may be causing it?

    Sounds like it could be your top mounts? They tend to do this on full lock.

    Strut mounts. Renault know about it and there's a tech note for it.

    Re: Creaking noise from front of car when turning steering wheel - 182

    If you read the first post I said that it wasn't this.

    I know that it does it on full lock when the car is cold, but this noise happens all the time, when turning the steering wheel. And when pulling off in a straight line.

    Are you guys sure that it is that? Because I knew of the suspension problem before this and was a different sound.

    Jack up the front end - use stands and get as close as possible to the steering rack. Get someone to turn the steering wheel and listen for noises - my Clio Dci does exactly as you describe and its definetly the rack. Spoke to a bloke at Renault who mentioned its a common problem - only solution is a new rack because its a sealed unit. But also mentioned forget about it - there's an idle gear on electric assisted racks that gets noisy - but it won't fail or effect MOT. Just have to live with it I'm afraid.
    There's also a tech note supposedly.

    My 182 had a bad creaking noise from new, sounded like an old piece of wood (best I can describe)?? My dealer fixed it by replacing the rotary switch and another component, which I can't remember, behind the wheel. Steering also feels better when driving, bit more "meaty".

    Oh yeah and one of my indicators wasn't cancelling sometimes. Since having the creaking fixed, this has stopped happening.

    Thanks for that, might get it booked into a garage then sometime. Its just such an annoying sound. The rubbing sound when on full lock did my head in, and now I have this.

    If it is the top strut issue than it is entirely possible to fix it yourself.

    Need a tool to grind down where it's rubbing on the top strut.

    I had this with my car, bit of duck oil worked into the mount and it doesn't creak anymore.
