I've got a 2001 astra coupe turbo. When the car is stationary and the steering wheel is turned, there is a a nasty crunching sound.
Its not loud but its definitely noticeable and its only audible when the car aint moving.
Is this a dodgy powers steering pump or something more sinister? The noise only appeared two days ago.
The car was in a vauxhall garage (in glasgow) from wednesday morning to thursday evening, for a seperate problem. They were trying to work out what was causing my speedometer and the rest of the clocks to stop working. I hope its just a coincidence but the noise only appeared when I got the car back from vauxhall.
The car is going back at some point this week for a new instrument panel but I was just wondering if anyone could shed any light on the crunching sound.
