Steering box rattle
I've got a 147, and the steering box has developed a rattle. On smooth roads it is quiet. But if either wheel hits a bump, there is a rattle behind the footwell. (Initially i was thinking it may have been sway bar issue) Anyway, there is no real noticeable difference in steer quality (yet). I have just had the car serviced, and they recommended that the steering box be replaced (At a great cost). Given that they said that there is no safety issues at the moment, it seems that they have had this issue before, and they know of the problem. My alfa has done only 75,000km.
Has anyone else had this issue? Cheers!
