Hi all

try'd doing a search but couldnt find anything like my symptoms:

On my 1997 CSE 2.3 FTP:

If stationary, If I shake the steering wheel back and forth over a quarter turn (if taht makes sense) I get a knocking as I change direction of the steering wheel.

Also when parking, as I turn the wheel back and worth I get the knocking then too...

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance

Anthony

So its not a problem then. Its a very faint knock, that really you only hear when listening for it.

My MOT is this month so I guess this will not be a problem??

i have been told by wise woman that if the front shockers turret mounts are worn,this would cause a knocking.i could feel play on them in my carly if bounced on the wing and held the mount at the same time.just another idea into the melting pot!!
