Hi my problem noticed now a days as I feel faint click come from steering wheel when I turn it to right mainly at low speed when I pass through u turn it is faint rubber like not metallic click one or sometimes two 2clicks come very close to each other ie within second.
This click not happen always.
When I am parking and turning wheel in all direction no sound come on.
No any dash sign come.
I checked recently a mechanic and not retrieve any problem.
I sold it from USA and now I am in Jordan /middle east/ so it is not under warranty.
the car is new one , is this sound normal or what can cause this sound.
Please help wat to do.
It is not repeatative sound as I told only one or 2 clicks.
I drove it in reverse and turning wheel to right and left no sounds come on.
I hope I gave all necessary information

Since the noise is not regular, it is not something to be alarmed of.
Locating noises is not something easy and unless you can find the source of the noise, we are not of much help.
I would suspect the steering universal joints or shaft to be the cause if it is internal. If the noise is coming from external, it could be from the strut mount bearing.
