Help Strange noise with steering wheel on GTV


I posted this in the General Alfa discussion section, then saw the GTV section... anyway.....

I've got an X-reg GTV Lusso 2.0 T-Spark, had it since April.

Recently the steering wheel has been making a strange squeaking/clicking noise when you straighten up from going round a right hand corner. It doesn't sound as if it's coming from the rack, more like where the wheel actually meets the dash.

Are there any bearings or similar in there which could have dried up?
Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

Re: Strange noise with steering wheel on GTV

Hey there, intersetingly enough my 96 gtv has started doing the same. A slight sqeek when turning straight from a right hand turn. It is definately coming from the steering wheel but seems od to only happen when turning one way. I you discover the fault please let me know as although it doesnt apear to be serious and can be "cured" by turning the stereo up it is slightly annoying.

Happens all of the time.
Try squirting some silicon lube behind it - what you will probably find tho' is that it will come and go of it's own accord and for no apparant reason.

Re: Strange noise with steering wheel on GTV

Hi there,

My 96 GTV has a similar problem, when I turn my wheels left and right the car makes the most embarrasing loud screeching noise!!! what can this be? Is it the power steering fluid low or some other deeper problem?

Try the fluid first they do need regular checking, - make sure its the right stuff ... could also be the pump belt?

Mine used to squeak like that too, they put a bit of oil/wd40 type stuff behind the wheel when I had the car serviced a few weeks back and that cured it.
