Reported to dealer, new bush ordered (not sure which or where...!). Confirmed noise coming from inside the cabin and not outside.

You'll have to let us all know what bush it is and where, I have it but could have sworn it was the O/S top suspension mount?

He suspected that as well, but as I made the noise via the steering wheel, he went to each front wheel and listened for it, but we both identified the noise as being inside the cabin!

Hi all. I have the same noise on my J10 with 20k on the clock. On very smooth road at 5mph the creaking noise coming from behind the steering wheel. I will spray the lower linkage with GT85 ptfe spray and report back. Madmatt2015-05-22 21:17:25

Bush replaced and knocking noise seems to have gone!

One thing I forgot to mention is my creaking noise isn't temperature related. 20 degrees plus today.

The knocking noise was all the time with the latest fault. Last time it was fixed by lubricant but they replaced a 'lower steering column bush". Not sure what it was but its cured the problem

Does the noise appear also when you don't turn the steering wheel and just slowly drive on a bit bumpy roads?
