steering knock

I have had the same problem with my '02 MC, from day one.
At one stage the steering was so bad, it was not only knocking but a grinding and this was not only when the car was cold!
over a period of a year the car was in and out of the MINI dealership and over time i had 7 new steering wheel colums and 4 steering racks. i had a senior tech from plant oxford come and look at the car bit they could not find a single problem with it. then after a year I went to another dealership and there they said it was a steering bolt, this did not fix the problem.
then after all this i managed to get commpensation from BMW GB, but even now the problem is still around, but only very very lightly, but its o.k., but now there si a probloem with the suspension !!!!!!!! :( :( ahahah :mad:
any way after all this time the car is fine and fixed, so the moral is persist this problem can be fixed! but be persistant, the steering on a car is really important and ,make sure the MINI dealership do it properly!
