Active Tourer creaky steering

Post by suhtland » Mon May 29, 2017 8:51 pm

Hi,
My 8 month old 218d Sport AT has developed a creaky noise from the steering column. Adjusting the column, in/out and up/down makes no difference. Worst when moving off and turning the wheel. Anyone encountered this before? A visit to dealer beckons. Not amused on 8 month old car and 4,600 miles.

Rubbing on the plastic trim that houses the column ?
DEFECTED TO SKODA.

Got car back from dealer today: they report support bearing noisy at top of front strut. Replaced top mount bearing.
All very well, but on an 8 month old car? Doesn't inspire confidence for the future!
