Humming steering box on tii


schuetz1619

Recommended Posts

When I turn the steering wheel there is a pitched hum that increases in volume the further the wheel is turned. Perhaps it was there previously, but I don't recall it until yesterday. 

 

Any ideas on why this could be occurring /what it means? There's no oil leakage that I can see or feel.

 

Many thanks.

 

P.S.  I think of the steering box as "new." Looking back on my records I installed my "new" box 96,000 miles ago in 1998.  Still . . .

The rubber disc where the idler arm connects to the center link makes a humming noise when I turn the wheel, if it runs out of lubrication.  I think it may have something to do with being close to the down pipe.  I just squirt some oily stuff on it and the noise goes away.  Lately, I've decided I kind of like the little groaning noise it makes.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
