creaking steering wheel?

Hi All

I have just joined your group having recently purchased a 2002 mini cooper s. I am pleased with it but have one problem that is a bit perplexing. When going slow and turning the steering wheel to the left or right it creaks a little. Otherwise it drives and steers fine when I am driving normally. Could antbody suggest what the problem could be?

Many thanks Steve

Did you find an answer to the clonking noise

Hi Steve, my 2007 mini has started to clonk/creak at the steering wheel when turning...I saw your thread but couldn't click on the link that the other member pasted so just wondered if you had gotten to the bottom of the problem?

Thanks Alice
