This bulletin is being revised to add additional models and parts information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 05-02-32-005B (Section 02 - Steering).

Condition
Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle during a turning maneuver. This condition can also be felt through the steering wheel when the vehicle is stationary and the wheel is rotated from steering stop to steering stop. Typically, the clunk noise will be heard once for every 90 of steering wheel rotation in either direction. This clunk noise may also be noticed during low speed acceleration or deceleration, typically in light turns of the steering wheel.

The following are characteristics of this noise:

This noise is very random.

This noise is independent of the steering wheel angle and independent of the bumpiness of the road.

This noise is a low frequency dull one and can be felt in your feet.

This noise can normally be heard from the driver seat.

This noise can be felt upon touching the steering gear from outside of the vehicle.

Note that you might also notice a slight scrub-type noise when turning the wheel back and forth. This type of noise is considered normal and repairs will not eliminate it.

Cause
This condition may be caused by inadequate lubrication of the steering intermediate shaft.

Correction
DO NOT REPLACE THE STEERING GEAR OR STEERING COLUMN ASSEMBLY.

Replace the intermediate shaft.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
