Thumbs Up 159 Steering Noise


Recently purchased a 57 plate 159 - All is great apart from a clunky noise on the drivers side wheel when turning right. Its clear when driving but only happens when going over 25 MPH - anyone had a similar problem or any ideas what it could be?

Mine had a loose steering rack - seriously, the bolt holding it down wasn't tight and I've seen comments of at least one other the same on here.

Also check the steering tie rods and track rod ends - basically the joints between the steering rack and the hub.

Upper suspension arm bushes are known to fail, too.
