Noises during steering movement

With this kind of repair job, the customer complains of a grinding noise in the steering column area when the steering wheel is moved/turned.

If the problem described above is identified, one possible cause may be insufficient lubrication of the sliding contacts for the driver's airbag on the steering column.

Repair notes:

-Remove the driver's airbag (Caution: work on and with airbags may only be carried out by qualified personnel).

-Grease the sliding contacts for the airbag on the steering column with the special lubricant prescribed by the vehicle manufacturer (G 052 172 M2).

-Reinstall the driver's airbag.

Subsequently, a test drive should be undertaken to check the repair measure and also an error code query should be carried out with a suitable diagnostic unit.


Please note that such repair work should only be carried out by an authorised specialist workshop and that the vehicle manufacturer's repair and maintenance instructions are to be observed!
