  • Steering shaft boot on firewall

    Hi, does anyone know if this looks right? There has been a slight clicking sound (similar to that of a relay) whenever there's steering movement. The dealer located the cause - plastic sleeve as part of the steering shaft boot is rubbing on something. This will be replaced under warranty when the part arrives. However, when I picked up the car (done 1,000kms) today I notice an obvious tapping noise (similar to bad tappets) from the driver side engine bay through the firewall when accelerating. Sounds similar to the diesel engine clacking I can be certain this noise wasn't present before. I suspect this comes from the steering shaft area so I took a photo of the shaft and hope to see if this looks right and nothing's been forgotten when they reassembled the boot. Any advice is much appreciated.
