Rubbing and ticking noise when turning. It happens in stationary mode as well as in motion with steering movement.
Can somebody help?

nugent,
Thank you so very much. I believe it is coming from somewhere around fire wall. With the information I will see if I can take care of it.

You're welcome. I am interested in the outcome because I have a rubbing feeling/faint sound when I turn the steering wheel, only in cold weather. I think it is the issue as described in my previous post.

There is some sort of rubber o-ring or bushing near the fire wall. It is usually the cause of a rubbing/squeeking sound. Comes and goes with no apparent reason. It is a time consuming fix. Both our W210s suffered from it and I just let it squeek.

Like figuero said, bushing of the steering shaft is common source, but it could be also the ball joint (suspension)...

It could be as simple as your shocks. I too had this problem. changed sway bar busings and still had this problems. When I replaced my shocks, the problem went away.
