    Rough noise coming from steering

    Any other reasons why there is a really rough noise coming from steering. Started about 6 years ago however now the noise is very loud?
    I have had
    1. 2013 Software update, steering lock fault within the software
    2. 2013 Steering rack replaced
    3. 2018 Check revealed nothing wrong with power steering
    Thanks Tony

    I'm going to poke a little fun at US and across the pond English, because on my side of the pond shagging balls in the park is a good thing, knocking up the lady next door isn't and on this side of the pond we have to guess at what rough noise is.

    Am guessing that your rough noise is what we call growling or grinding noise, not our word for rubbing or groaning and that with the rack replaced and the steering checked with no trouble found that your car has all wheel drive.

    Assuming you have all wheel drive and with the noise now very loud, I'm going to guess that when it first started, it was only noticeable on slow tight turns and now you hear it every time you turn the wheel and only when the car is moving. Moving, turning and growling or grinding noise comes from the drivetrain and it's usually the CV joints, but it could can also come from the transmission.

    When you post a question like this, adding the year along with the engine and transmission, will cut down on the guess work and improves your chances of getting a good answer on the first go around.

    Hi would like to add..... David Young Michigan original owner of 2010 Aero AWD 6speed automatic 130K on odometer. Growling started when car was new on slow tight turns, I gave the car to my daughter for graduating college and she says the growling on turns is almost commonplace. Do we still think CV joints?
