Howdy,

I have a petrol '07 1.4s Note.

Occasionally when I'm steering there is a tick or spark like noise coming from behind the wheel. There is also slight movement in the pedals. Enough so that I originally thought the noise was coming from the footwell (I felt something in my feet when the noise happened). I can get it to happen when stationary but not when the engine is switched off.

Bit of an odd one. Any ideas?!

Thanks guys :)

Hi again, I thought I should give you an update!

We took the car to a West Way Nissan & they found that the locating clip on the lower steering shaft was bent & must have been catching as we turned the wheel (hense the metal twanging sound). So a small job in the end! It cost about £50 for them to remove & test it.

Expensive but then that's what you get for going to a Nissan specialist I guess. Just glad it wasn't something worse.

Not as expensive as it was for me. I found the problem myself after ### Nissan Dealer failed to find iton threeoccasions during warranty.They then agreed to replace locking tag outside warranty but I had ruined a new pair of dubarrys in the process when the sharp end of tag gouged them......Grrrrrrrrrrr !!!!

£46 labour: how long does it take to undo a bolt and put it back?


I saw that clip when I was checking the fit of the steering shaft following Ians1386's post in the "Knocking front suspension" thread. It is not shown in the manual, and I couldn't see what it actually did, if it is a locking device, they could have just used threadlock, or a split washer like on most other cars I've owned.
