Hi All,
I have a standard 2005 BA Falcon, has done around 220000kms.
I have recently noticed that when I move the steering wheel to the left it makes a whirring sound.
I'm guessing its the power steering, but have checked the fluid and it is full.
It doesn't make this sound when turning to the right.
It has also meen making a soft crack/bang sound when i slow down to under 10-15km's.

Anyone had something similar happen or roughly know what it might be?

Yep, The soft Banging sound isn't really happening all that often, but the noise is every time i drive it....
Dont want to be stuck anywhere or have to limp it home as i dont have anything else to drive atm!!

Sounds like a wheel bearing.. How does the car brake-pull too the left/right, steering wheel wobbles??
