Default Re: Steering Rattle unable to fix

just got home. Car is still not fixed, even after $10,000 in parts. I think the GM is going to commit suicide, lol.

I am not sure what the next steps will be but I think a field engineer from Subaru is going to come out and meet me.

What's worse is that now my steering pump makes a pretty loud whine when at full lock, at least I think it's the pump.
Never did this before and not sure what would even cause this??

This is one of the things they replaced too.

So now I have more problems than when I arrived.

went to the dealer again today to no avail.

They replaced the other axle and the problem still exists.

They have FINALLY agreed to take apart the steering column and see if something is rubbing.

I will say it does it a lot worse on bad pavement or cobblestone kind of ground, OR when it's cold or wet outside.

Not sure what will be next but waiting to hear back and steering column is taken apart.

update:

They are now replacing the rubber steering lines that connect to the pump as well as the serpentine belt.

What's super annoying is now I have a whine from the pump that was not there before. Go figure.

bottom of this quickly, ya right!!!! I have a feeling they are not going to be able to fix it.

I have not had my car in 6 months, and at this rate, it could be another month, and the problem will still be there. I find this unacceptable as I have been making payments with no car.

They also forced me to put my car back to stock as they said it was the cause of the front diff, which of course was not true and did not even fix it. Car is slower in stock form

Here is the list of parts so far they have replaced:

1. steering rack
2. steering pump
3. center diff
4. front diff
5. left Axle
6. right Axle

and now waiting on

7. belt
8. steering lines.

They haven't looked at the steering column yet? I know there are some bushings that could get worn out. Weird.

they decided against it last minute and are going with belt and steering lines.

The thing is the tires somewhat shutter when it happens, so...

I assume the steering column gets taken apart from the inside? Are the bushings easy to see?

Even if you’ve returned it to stock form, and all the warranty work still can’t fix it? I’m sure a lawyer could come up with a good case.
