Greetings friends,

Lately since the weather has become significantly colder, my 04 CTT has developed an erratic issue when I turn my steering wheel.

I have no idea how this car works, but on an older car it would be similar to what your car would feel like when it's running low on power steering fluid. It seems a little bit harder to turn the wheel, and I can hear something when I turn the wheel. This doesn't happen all of the time, it seems to happen on and off.

I've tried searching the forum for something similar but I couldn't come up with anything.

Any ideas?

I saw a similar thing where one front tire had a huge wear problem on the inside edge of the tire. Way too much negative camber (on one side only) caused the tire to wear down to the cords on the inside.

Probably a rock or pothole was the cause -- but the car ended up needing tires, balance, and alignment.

On my '06 Turbo S I flushed out all of the Steering fluid last summer and re-installed with the newer CHF202 fluid over the older CHF11S. Porsche had a TSB saying that the newer 11S is backwards compatible and mixable, I also found that it cost a little less than the 11S fluid. Seemed to sound better after the flush and the old fluid definitely wasn't a nice green like new CHF11S is.
