    Just reversed the car out of the drive, and as i turned the wheel i could hear a creaking sound from under the bonet!, I does it when stationary when turning forceis applied, and it did it when i put my foot on the front wheel and applied some sideways force, any ideas?

    you shouldnt be turning the wheels when stationary on a car with power steering, it puts lots of pressure on the pump.

    Is the creaking on full lock?

    Why is this thread is the Tuning Forum?

    Should it not be in chassis and brakes or have I missed something?
