      Ok, so a few days ago, my CC's steering wheel decided it was going to start making a noise when I turn it. It's not super loud, but lound enough to annoy the **** out of me.

      It kind of sounds like one of those wheels you see at fairs, kinda like this:



      Any ideas on how to stop this? I'd rather not have to go to the dealer for something so small but I can't take this damn noise.

      Do you actually mean a rapid clicking sound as you spin the steering wheel?

      Two possible scenarios:

      1- CV joint

      2- Subframe assembly is lose, moving and hitting the underbody.

      I had a simillar noise and dealer added shim plates to subframe to prevent it from moving and as a result destroyed my car.

      The steering wheel itself is making noise? Or some other component is making noise when you turn the steering wheel?

      Couple of questions:

      1. Where is the noise coming from ... the steering wheel itself or somewhere else?

      2. Does the noise occur when the vehicle is stationary, or when it's moving?

      3. If you only get the noise when you're moving and when the wheel is turned to the right or left, the clacking or knocking noise may be a CV joint.

      4. If you're getting the noise when the vehicle is stationary and while turning the wheel, I would check the pump and or steering rack.

      There is no power steering pump. The power rack is electric, no fluid.

      1. Where is the noise coming from ... the steering wheel itself or somewhere else? It's coming from the steering wheel itself. From the steering column actually. It's a creak, but the faster I turn the wheel, the more it sounds like a very fast tick.

      2. Does the noise occur when the vehicle is stationary, or when it's moving? Both.

      3. If you only get the noise when you're moving and when the wheel is turned to the right or left, the clacking or knocking noise may be a CV joint. Happens when standing still as well, so it rules this out

      4. If you're getting the noise when the vehicle is stationary and while turning the wheel, I would check the pump and or steering rack. Again, happens also while driving so it kinda rules this out too.

      I'll see if I can record the sound with my phone after work and post it up.

      Go to your dealership. I had this recalled on my CC. There are two wires inside the steering wheel that wrap around the column. They have know go to bad. That is most likely what has to be removed.

      I didn't hear it making noise at that time but the dealer found out when turning the wheel in stationary that it was making a slight clicking/rubbing noise in the steering wheel.


      As for me to hijack this thread: I'm hearing a creeking noise in the right wheel well when going about 2-5mph with no gas applied. It's only when turning the steering wheel all the way to the right. It doesnt happen when I'm going faster. Possible CV Joint, or rubber housing cracked are my only thoughts for my car.

      That sounds like it might be it.

      Mine is making a light rubbing sound as opposed to a clicking sound. Will let my dealership take care of it.

      Sounds like a slight friction sound inside the steering wheel hub. My Eos is totally silent while turning the steering wheel.

      Mine has the same sound. Did your dealer fix it?

      I have this too but usually when the car is cold. Definitely from the steering wheel, sounds like something is wrapped around the column like cwwiii mentioned. I had the dealer check it before but they couldn't recreate the noise.

      I never actually went into the dealer to fix it. I'm going to wait until my 20K service and have them look at it then.

      Most likely the clock spring. A lot of CC's and B6 Passat make this noise from the factory.

      have you done the electronic steering column lock recall, it cover 09-10 CC's.

      Don't know if it will fix your noise, but it might.

      Take a couple of hours for the dealer to complete.

      x2 on this

      Definitely comes from the steering wheel when making low speed turns

      Not really a big deal, but a little annoying
