Shaking whilst turning steering at standstill

Any ideas....

My steering has been a concern for a while (2 dealers have not found a problem), had new fluid etc... but ive never felt happy with it and when i parked up at work this morning and i straightened up the wheel (yes i know you shouldnt move it when stood still) at certain parts the whole car seeemd to shake, feel it through seat and steering wheel.

Anyone else had this is it normal, getting very, very paranoid about the car now!

Take a look at this thread:

When I turn the wheel at low speeds or when parking, I get a creaking or knocking noise. Yesterday the dealer recommended a new steering rack should be fitted under warranty, just waiting for approval by Alfa UK. My car has always done this, but its only now they've recognised that theres something seriously wrong with the steering. Like you, I had the fluid changed and it didn't make any difference. I'm not the only one with steering problems, as you'll see from the thread. It seems to be an increasing problem of late.

My MG used to hit at least 6 on the Richter scale when I turned the wheel!

Good Luck!
