Yep, I too have a (fairly quiet) creaking sound when turn the wheel at low speed or idle.

I'm approaching the time for my car's second service and will ask the dealer to look at it then.

I vaguely remember a creaking noise from the steering wheel when I first picked up my V40. It was not loud and did not bother me. It disappeared quickly too after picking the car up new, never returning. That was 14 months ago mind you hence my vagueness.

I have just returned from the dealers and after some checking, they found out that my coil springs are the culprit.

Will take 2 weeks for the replacement coil springs to arrive from Sweden, and hopefully it will solve this once and for all after replacing them.

no luck with the service centers. brought my car in and had my coil springs exchanged for 3 times, still the problem persists!

it's now sitting in the service center for the past 5 days, without any indication on when this will be sorted. it's getting really frustrating.

anyway, here's a video clip on the issue.

background noise is pretty bad, so trying using ear phones for better clarity.

hope you guys can help me out with suggestions on how to fix this :/ even the dealers are / volvo technicians are clueless!
