I wonder if the noise comes from the upper part of the steering column, if it can be from the clockspring?

Re: Steering Wheel "Moan"

I'm not sure. It only when you turn the wheel to the left, never to the right even when return to center from a left hand turn. Also it does it on a medium to fast turn, it will be quite if turned slow. IIt's moaning or a creaking sound. Weird you can also feel in the steering wheel.

Re: Steering Wheel "Moan"

I own a repair shop and have had this noise in my wife's jeep for about a year. Doesn't bother hear but it kills me every time I get in her vehicle. It does sound like it is coming from the column and it will make the noise in park by just turning the wheel. I have tried changing the entire column. I talked to jeep and installed updated pressure and return hoses. I also have pulled the steering shaft off and checked the joints on it. Nothing in the steering linkage is binding as far as I can tell and many of those parts have been replaced. I will be trying a new box and will see if that fixes the problem.

I did replace my steering gearbox 2 weeks ago and cannot recall off the top of my head hearing anything. However, that might simply be because I've grown used to the noise. I'll have to listen for it from now on.

Re: Steering Wheel "Moan"

Gentlemen,

I have a 2002 WJ that makes all of the usual noises that are complained about! This noise that seems to be in the steering column though, I wonder if it might be the clockspring?

I disassembled a clockspring a while ago and I noticed that the grease that was utilized to lubricate the ribbon had dried and become tacky. Instead of the ribbon smoothly winding and unwinding, it would shutter like a deck of cards being shuffled...

Just another thought,

Carlos

Re: Steering Wheel "Moan"

Well I had a go at trying to find the source of the moaning steering wheel without much success. However, I did reduce the moan quite significantly by simple spraying Innox around any steering linkage under the WJ. If it moved it got sprayed.
I am happy to say that I have gone from moaning on any turn left or right to a small moan on hard left only.

Hope this helps

Since replacing the steering gearbox, mine has been gone. I think it's something in the gearbox.

Re: Steering Wheel "Moan"

Yep,
Beginning to think that it is as well.
The innox spray was definitely temporary as it is now back with a vengeance.
I now find that it is at it's loudest on first turn after starting vehicle.
