2004 BMW X3 6 cyl Automatic 47,000 miles. Steering problem I hear a strange crackling sound when I turn my steering wheel to either a hard left or hard right. I'm usually going at a slow speed such as turning around. It is pretty loud. My car's body also sounds like an old wooden boat with the creaking sounds as well during the same situations.

The steering wheel issue sounds like the clock spring is getting a bit noisy, this should be covered by the warranty, if not the part #61-31-8-379-091 will be what you need. As to the creaking noises in the body of the car, there is a bulletin that addresses the issue and it involves replacement of all door seals and is a warranty item as well.
