    Default Front bang/knock noise on turning wheel

    My problem has slowly developed. It used to be only on full lock turns but now when parked I can get this to perform by jiggling the steering wheel on a good surface. It bangs on change of direction of the steering wheel.

    It sounds like bottom ball joint or could it be something to do with the steering rack?

    I would be grateful for some input.

    Cheers

    Have you checked the pinch bolts on the universal joint at the bottom of the steering column. This happened to my sons corsa, kept coming loose until I put some loctite on the bolt.

    Thanks for your reply but the knock/bang is heavier and comes from both sides. I suspect lower ball joint or something else. Its only when there is alot of stress on changing turning direction that it bangs.

    Have you checked if is the springs? Do they have fitted the rubber sleves on the spring? If it is a ball joint all you have to do to check it is lift the car and with the wheels on the air hold the wheel with both hands and rock it hard up and down and side to side, if there is play on the wheel ask someone to get underneath and see from where is coming from.
