Except that , nothing special , no vibration , the steering fluid is full and does not seem to leak.

here is my noise , I recorded the sound with my phone , p38 4.6 2000 53000km.
the sound is very obvious


what is could be ??

any ideas?

should I stop to use the car until the fix?

thanks

Mine used to make a similar noise, turned out it was a bush on the top of the steering column that needed some lubrication.

Had to remove the Airbag, steering wheel,SRS clockspring to get to it though.


Dont forget to disconnect the battery before removing the above or you will get a SRS/Airbag warning notice that will require textbook or faultmate to turn off.

I went under the truck...

I lubricated the ball joints , the noise is gone!!!

the rubber is completely destroyed!!!

is it vital to change them? ( 50 000 km ball joints) , in this case how to process please.
what do I need to change ? do I need some special tools as well ?
any recommendations?
