I have a Ford Ka 2000 without power steering. Lately when I turn the steering wheel to the left I hear a loud noise coming from the front left suspension sometimes accompanied by a vibration. It happens during the first quarter turn and if I keep turning the steering wheel to the left it stops. Also it does not happen when returning the steering wheel to the center position. This problem is visible most while turning at a standstill (when getting out of parking) or when driving slow (less than 10km/hr).
Another note is that I tried to jack that side of the car and when turning the steering to the left the problem does not happen when jacked. It looks like its only happening while the suspension is under the pressure of the car body.
Many thanks for any feedback.
have the same problem?
