    Steering clicking

    Has anyone had a steering clicking develop during dry steering or slow speed steering? It is a clicking that can be felt rather than heard.

    I am guessing something like a dry bush or something similar?

    Anyone have any ideas how to stop it?

    Thanks

    Is it like a knocking sound on full lock? Could be CV boot/joint?

    The steering isnt smooth in either direction from straight wheels.

    Feels like something is dry somewhere and causing it to click.

    Noticed any grease or gunk on your front wheels at all?

    It will be the CIM module behind the steering wheel. New one from vauxhall under warranty, if not then pull your trousers down

    my mk4 gsi does this, feels like something has a bit of play in it , you cant hear it just feel a 'notchiness' to the steering when the car is stationery

    how could the CIM module cause this? seems mechanical

    or is this just a astra h problem?
