Every time is is below 40 degrees outside my cars seems to have a very obnoxious whining/groaning noise when I turn the steering wheel. It is more of a groaning noise than a whine but I can't seem to figure out why it does this. The fluid is at a perfect level and the color of the fluid is still clean.
I had this same issue last winter and taken it to multiple shops to be looked at everyone seems to say the same thing, "This is a common issue in this year and model". Is anyone else having the same issue with 2004 Audi A6 (3.0 Quattro)!?!? I completely forgot about it during the spring and summer..now the cold came back and so is this annoying sound. It drives fine and does not show any tension to turning the steering wheel..
Someone please give me some input!
