i posted before about this, but a noise in my MT 05 S60R had developed that i thought was coming from the steering column. it only happened when i was accelerating, and it sounded like the noise a leaf makes when blowing across the grass. a somewhat quiet scraping. happened every time i accelerated.<br>at the 15,000 mile service last week, i told them about it. they told me all they did was lube the steering column. well as i drove off, it wasnt there.<br>the next day, and the last two weeks, it was back.<br>so i dropped it off today.<p>they took the glass off in front of the dash bezel, thinking that maybe the four screws there needed tightening.<p>well, they would have if the four screws were even there! apparently there were NO screws in the cluster behind the dash. could have been worse, i guess. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Not knowing about that area of the car too well that sure seems like a good find for a service department.

Re: here is a new one - irritating noise fixed (vintagemilano)

I agree the tech is to be applauded for tracking down something this obscure. KUDOS to him!<p>Had there been work done previously to the car that would have involved the removal, and then the screws not get replaced or is this a QC error from the factory?

Re: here is a new one - irritating noise fixed (rogersampson)

the service manager said it must have been a holiday in sweden the day they were supposed to install the screws. no work done previously. QC issue all the way....<br>i have had nothing but pleasant experience with the service department here in ohio. of course, i have had nothing but a pleasant experience with my R so far as well. (knock on wood).<p>i agree. i was impressed that they figured it out.

Re: here is a new one - irritating noise fixed (jermel)

Why didn;t they just replace the steering column bushing?<br>In 850's and V70's they start to squeak and groan after a few years as the bushings go bad. Knowning Volvo and their <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> logic, it seems to reason that the P2 cars probably have a similar setup and your column has a premature bushing failure.<br>Lubbing these is only a temporary fix, a new column bushing is probably in order for your car
