  1. Alright Chaps haven’t been on for a while, hope all is good with your Mégane. Got a creak coming from my steering on full lock at parking speeds. Car has done 73,000 miles, got M.O.T coming up it will pass because I know the bloke but would like to sort the issue obviously. Any ideas what’s worn out? Any ideas/feedback welcome. Cheers.
  2. Very likely to be your lower swivels

  3. I agree, 80% you have a little play in a swivel or both. If you accept an advise, replace both sides.:wink:
  4. I had the same with a worn lower swivel joint on the hub a couple of years ago.
  5. Cheers.
  6. How much do the parts cost?
  7. Cheers for the info.

  8. Do these swivel joints come out easily or can be a bastard? My dad has a press not sure what pressure it goes up to think it’s 10 tonne, would that do the job?
  9. They can be a pain, but you’ll manage with a good press
  10. For sure they'll be a nightmare, but your dad's press will be enough. Look for a good base of wood or nylon for avoid damages in the aluminium hub. A guy I know did the job with a hammer and you can imagine how finished the hub!:smile::smile::smile:
