Steering noise

Recommended Posts

When I steer to the right, turning the wheel completly a metal grinding noise begins. As soon as I retract a minimal angle from the steering the noise goes away. Only happens on the right side.

Has anyone experienced this?

;) Thanks

986 2.5L 1997 manual 5 SPD

Normally when pulling out of parking space where there is a need to fully turn the steering wheel. I am sure while it is moving it does it. Let me verify today if it also happens when stopped. Thanks.

> Confirmed that noise only happens when car is in motion. The noise is not there always. Today I did not hear it even when trying to duplicate the scenario.

I had something similiar in another car and to my suprise it ended up being that I was in desperate need of a brake change. It started off much like your describing but it soon became a constant sound.

My new 2004 boxster S with 1900miles on it does the same thing. It's not the brakes... :censored: Anyone else with the same problem? I thought maybe it was just part of the break in period.

I took the car out to a parking lot and did circles! The steering noise only comes on when I turn left and when I slow down. I can feel the vibrations in the wheel when the whirrling noise come out. I hear on the ppbb that it could be a strut bearing. I am taking it in next week.

Hey everyone, I have noticed this too in my 1998 Boxster. The vibrations and sound occur when I am parking or leaving a parking spot at a very slow rate of speed. I actually don't think it's the car. I'm not a very experienced stick shift driver, and I think it's the engine shaking as if it's about to stall out since I'm at such a slow rate of speed with maybe too much clutch out. I'm pretty sure we're all experiencing the same thing. But at least for me, I think my rough stick driving abilities are to blame. I certainly hope it isn't a mechanical issue. No one likes added expense.
