Common interior trim rattles

Recommended Posts

Greetings , hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday ,

I have squeak coming from behind the steering wheel cowling,  I have moved the steering wheel up, down, in and out,

and it still there, so don’t think it anything to do with the steering wheel,

i was wondering if there is a thread about common trim rattles,

does it happen when you turn or wiggle the wheel? if yes, it , might be a dry steering column bearing, I ve had this on other cars.  ended up flooding  the whole column top end with PTFE laden penetrating oil with bundles of blue forecourt roll in the footwell.

Could it be the instrument binnacle? Mine has an occasional squeak and rattle.


The problem with interior (and frunk/froot) rattles and squeaks is the way they travel around, in previous cars I've had noises appearing nowhere near their source.
