knocking steering rack......sometimes???

As mentioned in other threads the front clams off…anyone any idea what my knocking noise might be? I seem to get it worse after not using the car for a while.

My old 04 plate did the same thing when it got hot. Try tightening the steering column universal joint believe it’s a common fault?

make sure the bolts holding the steering rack in are tight!! ( thery are on the back wall of the foot wells).

Mine worked loose in teh exige once…
