Steering wheel is making a weird noise?
 
The other night I noticed when I turned my wheel all the way or almost all the way to one side it made a weird noise, now tonight it was doing it again, im hoping it just from the really cold weather we have been having, maybe it just needs time to warm up. It sounds like its coming from right behind were the wheel connects to the column, the sound is hard to describe but its not a squeeking or squeeling which is an issue we have on our 03' WJ. It almost sounded made the noise like when a CD is jammed in a player as weird as it sounds.

how much are they to replace? did you do it yourself or have the dealer do it?

There is a TSB for the clock spring on the 05 .. if you're under warranty go to the dealer.

Im guessing its not covered under the power train? I have 2 years left on that. My 3 year bumper to bumper is done. Any idea what its going to cost me? Now that you mention the issue I did remember thinking it sounded like a spring but couldnt think of what sound to call it when I posted it. :D

There was also a TSB for the turn signal cancel cam. All located in the same afore mentioned location... but this one was more common... made a clicking sound when turning the wheel.

is it a whirling noise?

I would say whirling and it's also sounded like a spring being wound to tightly, thats the best I can describe it haha. I can try to get a vid clip to catch the sound. I hope it goes away, I can live with it as it is till the summer because right now all my money needs to go to new tires.

I've had this same problem, this sounded more like a constant clicking noise.. The blinker release was sticking out too far causing it to click every time i turned the wheel. I swapped it from a friends before his lease went back..:lol:

It sounds like the clockspring. My 2005 had to have it replaced.
