There is a rubbing sound in my "new" 98 Beetle Automatic 2.0 steering column. It happens turning either direction. I sure would appreciate any suggestions as to what it might be and how to correct it. Thank You!
Hmm, if it comes from the inside I don't know what it could be. Perhaps there is a steering wheel gear of some sort. Not sure if it can be lubed. Never have taken the steering wheel column apart so I don't know where to start. Hopefully someone else may chime in and give you some more usefull pointers.
Sometimes dirt and dust (I have even seen lint) get stuck in there and cause a grinding. Could also be the airbag connector. Remove the clamshell pieces and take a look. The MK3 cars were really bad and the horn contact would do that and it just needed a little grease.
