Car makes a squeaking noise when turning the wheel
I noticed this last night, and I will be taking the car to the dealer in the next 48-72 hours. I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced this issue on their TL also..
I'm experiencing a rather high pitched (e e e e e e e e) noise when I turn my wheels from side to side while not in motion. It can't be my tires because this occurs on different roads (concrete, ashphalt, interlocking (my driveway)) and so on. To figure out the noise I'm hearing, simply say the letter "E" over and over again...
This is when the car is not moving, and it seems to be there also when the car is in motion, yet it is less apparent due to road noise and other things on the road. I'm wondering if you guys know what could be causing this.
Please keep in mind that this can be heard from the outside of the vehicle, so it can't be the steering wheel rubbing against the steering column, cause I have that problem too!!!

do you turn the wheels alot when your not moving?...or turn all the way to lock frequently?....a high pitch sound when turning can be associated with the sterring pump...but that ussually doesnt go too early unless its been abused...how many miles?....im sure with low miles it could be written off as defective even if its been abussed...
I had a sound like that (well mine sounded pretty bad, harsher than yours does from the sound of it) and the problem had to do with a bad bearing in my wheel (or something connected to my wheel, I can't remember what it was exactly).
See this is the interesting part. i noticed a few days ago that I had a leak coming from some car that is in my driveway. I don't know if it's my a-spec, or if it is coming from another car. I would assume it's from me since I park there all the time. The first thing that came to my mind when I heard the noise was it is related to the leak I have. Anyhow, I'm going to the dealer on friday to have the whole thing checked out.
Another thread was talking about an oring that goes bad internal to the p/s pump, replace that.
What's happening is the seal does not seal, allowing air to be introduced into the system causing noise.
Forum search is your friend.
Get someone to turn on the car and turn the wheel for side to side about a couple of inches each way. If you hear squeaks, its probably a lower ball joint. Just listen on each side and you'll find out which one.
Also, you don't have to buy the whole knuckle anymore. Honda has the ball joints now listed separately. Lower is 06523-S84-405 ~$18.00
@3.2TLC my issue is the PS. I was reading and found this info helpful. how ever i may be back to square one. we'll see im gonna try this o-ring fix i read in another thread. however IDK if this o-ring will work in my 2nd gen its for a 3rd gen. does anyone know? Or for that matter does anyone know if the PS on the 2nd gen has the same issue as the 3rd gen?
