No it hasn't. Don't be daft.

It's merely the noises your e46 steering made as well. It's just that there are no hydraulics to mask it. Silly man.

Anyone know if they've finally figured out how to fix this issue? Got a service coming up, wonder if I should mention the steering rack clunk or just continue to live with it...

I finally convinced the dealers to replace the steering rack and that was done in July. Up to this date I have not experienced and further bumps/rattles through the steering (touch wood).

So hopefully it is fixed permanently.

2800 miles and yesterday I started hearing this same sound and feeling it sometimes.

I have service appointment next week to get it looked at.

Feeling annoyed.
