E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: E87 118i 2007
E87 steering noise

This strange noise started just yesterday. It sounds like some rubber part touches another rubber or something. Its not as loud as it sounds in the video but you can still hear it cleary when the radio is turned off. You can also feel little resistance at the same time with the noise. The noise is little bit stronger when turning to the right side.

As I said the noise started yesterday but today when I started the car for the first time the noise was gone during the first 10 minutes or so but then it came back and didn't disappear even when I shut down and restart the car several times during the day.

I also shut down the car (but left the key in to keep the steering not to go locked) and moved the steering wheel and could still hear the same noise. You can also hear the noise from outside the car when the hood is open (have to listen quite carefully though).

The car is BMW E87 118i 2007 (facelift model).

Any ideas what is causing the noise?_a_
