Steering wheel noise

Post by verticalvauxhall » Tue Jun 30, 2020 8:15 pm

Hi all

I own a 17 plate astro 1ltr petrol.

lately I've been having this issue where the steering wheel makes a rubbing noise now when turning.

Please look at this video

What could this be and has anyone come across this before?

I had similar noise after changing steering wheel, it was just the steering slip ring / squib, if your up to it then just take off airbag, and undo the whole wheel, take it off, check squib feels alright etc, reseat if necessary. If the noise is just behind the wheel its probably that, if its behind gauge cluster then it's obviously something else.

Is it still under warranty? Then take it to the dealers to sort out

Took it to dealers and they said it is the steering rack that needs replacing... lets see if this fixes it
