    Knocking from steering column.

    My Astra Coupe 2.2 has developed a slight knocking from the bottom of steering area. If anyone knows, itís similar to the Vectra steering knuckle problem. Itís felt when turning and braking/accelerating, it can sometimes be felt it driving over uneven ground.

    It goes in on Sat to main dealer. Car is on 22k miles, and 20 months old. Has anyone else experienced anything similar.

    Cheers

    Possibly - I think i'm getting something similar, but I'm not sure if it's really there or not, as it's difficult to replicate at will. I was planning on having a looksee at the weekend

    Mines a 2.2 3dr @ 24months old & 40K

    re: Knocking from steering column.

    Im sure Im getting this problem too....

    Liek Ffoeg says I can tell all the time. Feels like when your on a Bycicle and the stem is a little loose.

    A little more rattle through the steering wheel than normal.....

    Oh yes I know it well, had a 2.2 Vectra and had the knuckle joint replaced twice and it still came back!!!

    Is the knock coming up through the steering, or is it through the pedals? My garage asked this when I complained the second time and they test drove it. I had a knock that I could feel through the pedals, mainly at low speeds turning into streets or parking up etc. always at the same point as I turned the wheel. The steering rack was replaced and it doesn't do it any more. I was told by the garage that the part number was now different and that he's had a couple like this and this different part number has sorted it.

    Hope you get it sorted, I know how annoying it is!

    sounds like it's your column or your uj joint. either needs tightening or replacing.

    would be considered a warranty claim if car under 3yrs 60k.
    life's to fast to go slow. so get the turbo.
