Anyone ever hear a "farting" like sound (pretty faint) coming from the steering in low speed turns? Doesn't happen all the time and mine is a SRT so it doesn't have the electric steering pump. It doesn't sound like it's coming from outside the car but more from in or under the dash near the steering column area. I can't feel it at all. Just wondering if anyone else has had this and was it a big deal or not.

Thanks in advance. :icon_smile:

I have a 2011 SRT8 which had a slight squeal at low speeds. Drove me nuts. The problem was resolved by spraying lithium grease around the gasket the that surrounds the steering wheel column by the firewall. It's inside the diver side compartment.

That did the trick!

There was a great write up on this problem on the charger forum. Try googling it.

Regards,
George

Don't know if its the same noise but in my 2014 RT I would hear a creaking at low parking lot speed with speed bumps and it sounded like a creaking from the dash or somewhere in front of me. A low creaking like a wooden ship. I took it to the dealer (for its first oil change) and told them I'm driving a Black Challenger, I don't want it sounding like the Black Pearl." From the passenger seat he could he hear it from my seat. They did the oil change and "lubricated usual squeaking spots on seat" and it took care of the problem.

At least for a while. If I have the radio off and I'm looking for parking it comes back. Wish I knew where they lubricated. I'm a big guy, (6 ft 300 lbs) so when the little guy from the dealership sat in the seat he didn't make a noise.

I've asked another person in the passenger seat if they could hear that noise and they said it was coming from the seat when I would swear it was coming from somewhere in the dashboard.

Hope that helps.

I test drove one that made that noise before I purchased mine. Sounded like it was coming from inside the dash. I could see how that could get on your nerves.Didn't sound like anything serious but something was rubbing in there.

Mine too! I keep telling my wife that it's my steering wheel but she doesn't buy it. I also tried to blame it on the dog and a barking spider. :icon_confused:

Are you sure it's the steering wheel? They say with age that these things just happen without being able to control it.

Does this only apply to 2012's. I have 2013 built in 2012 and it keeps making a whirring noise when I turn the steering wheel left or right at low speeds, and the noise is on the left side. I keep thinking it may be a suspension issue, maybe a bad shock or other suspension part.

Mine is still doing it. Can't decide if it's worth taking it in or not....you know, always a risk something could happen to it while it's not in your sight.
Tough decision. I could easily see one noise being fixed then introducing 3 new ones after a steering column re & re.

Guess there ARE advantages to being half deaf at 57 ;)
