    Wow, that is much louder than what id been hearing. Did you get it fixed? There's a youtube video of a guy spraying WD40 in what looks like a service port on the steering column side. Worked for him but i dont want all that runny lube dripping about.

    I had this issue and it seems to be working itself out as well. It was every time I turned the wheel, maneuvering in a parking lot. It seems to be happening less frequently. I'm thinking that maybe the grease is working itself around the rubber grommet (if that is the actual cause) with use.

    Mine got fixed after the 5th attempt by TESLA. The rubber grommet behind the steering wheel was not sitting correctly and was rubbing against something when the wheel was turning. They also added lots of lubricant as well.
