  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] Corsa D 1.4

    Hi, I have a corsa d 1.4, there is a knocking noise up the steering column, no play in ball joints, have put in new drop link arms, 2 new coil springs. Electric steering works ok, anti roll bar rubbers ok. The knocking noise is coming from the steering column, cannot find any play in anything.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hold the steering wheel top and bottom and check there's no play in the top bearing. I've seen a few go there but usually it is the lower joint which you'll only check by crawling under the dash panel and giving the lower end of the column a good shake. The other thing to do is to jack up the front end and check the steering rack for play (by holding the roads wheels at 9 & 3 position and giving a good twisting) - play in the rack can cause noise to travel up the column.
