Creaking and groaning
Good evening everyone. I have been a long time lurker here and now I have a little more time on my hands, I would like to be an active member of this community.
I have a 147 that has been off the road for a year and a half, and now it has passed it's MOT and all running nicely, I have creaking steering.
It creaks if I turn it slowly at any point (not just in the straight ahead position) The noise sounds like it is coming from the back of the dashboard and is worse when it is warmer. Now I am hoping that it isn't a steering rack but if anyone could shed any light on it I would be most grateful.
Also, whilst I am on a roll. My clutch pedal creaks. It is a creak and not a squeak and happens at the top of the pedal travel and the bottom of the travel. It is mildly annoying and along with the steering noise it is driving me and my passengers mad.
Thank you in anticipation.
