Good day everyone, I own a 2001 Boxster and noticed a tiny, almost cannot hear ticking sound coming from my steering rack area. This was when I was puttting the car away after a somewhat hard drive. 1/2 hour of stop and go traffic jam then 1/2 hour freeway.Only happens when operating the wheel at a dead still. Fluid level is ok, never happened before. Would flushing out the system and putting new oem fluid help. Or is this the beginning of the end for the steering rack? Car has 56000 miles and everything including the steering is still very tight. Thanks for all the help

this might be the start of a dry / seizing ball joint or tie rod end.... Tough call without hearing it, but the creaking ball joints are common here in the north.

Ive also seen seized steering shafts causing stiff steering... You will have to isolate the problem before you start throwing parts at it..
