  • Steering wheel Creeking noise

    Hey everyone, just thought I would let anyone who has a my12 Pajero and has a creeking/squeeking noise coming from their steering wheel trim that as I found out today this is covered by warranty and is a "known issue".

    Thought I would mention it as its such a small problem that I almost didn't bother mentioning it to my dealer when it went in to fix a leaky windscreen washer thinking they may think I'm insane or being over pedantic.

    Happens on Gen3s as well. I've had it a couple of times. Don't know what the mechanic did but it was an easy fix apparently.

      Thanks Kumabear, i thought i was the only one with that creeking/squeeking noise only happens when the car is out in the sun and the interior is hot, does not do it in winter.

        Interesting... I have noticed a very faint creaking noise (its kinda higher pitched than a car body creak would be) from the steering area. Definitely more noticeable when the car is warm from sitting in the sun... I might mention it to my dealer when it goes in for its 15k service and hopefully it will get fixed. Not a massive problem as I don't usually notice it.

          I had a creak from the steering wheel / column. Convinced it was in the junction between wheel and column I started ripping things apart. Turned out it was where the column goes through the firewall, quick spray and fixed. My mechanic said that it is common in many cars and common to not work out where it is coming from.

            It is defiantly related to the heat in the cabin expanding things, the dealer says there is a known issue with the silver spacers on the wheel trim (on the spokes) and the wheel controls moving a bit.

              Drives me mad. I can't stand rattles and noises in cars. Will get the dealer to look at it next service.

                Hi,

                Funny you mention this, as ours did it yesterday on the way home from the dealer. It had been sitting windscreen facing the hot sun for a while. Will check it today, but it is annoying!

                Cheers,

                  Used to get a steering wheel squeek on my old NM occasionally, although wasn't from wheel itself, but rather the steering column/firewall interface. A quick spray of WD40 around the point of contact used to fix it for quite a while. Hasn't happened on my NW yet though. Still early days I guess. When it does happen, I think it's just the seal drying out and/or hardening.

                    The noise I am getting is distinctly a plastic on plastic/rubber squeak or creaking. Very annoying on hot days and even happens if I just hold the wheel and gently push and pull on it, also there is quite a bit of play in the cruise control button plastic section and pushing on this gently creates the noise.

                    Seems to be a mix of the cruise control part + the silver spacers around the wheel moving slightly and rubbing on the rubber of the wheel, one of these spacers also has a hair line crack in it.

                    Is going in tomorrow morning now that parts have arrived I will let you all know how it goes.

                      Got car back other day with new steering wheel trim.

                      No issues at all with creaking anymore, which is awesome as it was slowly driving me insane. Even after car sitting in 35-40c direct sunlight its still silent.

                      If you are also having issues I would say take it in and hope your dealer is good about it.
