    am not sure brother.....just have look on both front mudflaps,seems like they are getting rubbed with the tyres when you turn the steering..i had same issue of noise while turning....now thrown off both torn mudflaps....

    on this steering note.......

    when i had been to my car dealer @ ludhiana one fellow had come with the issues of wires got cut and massive short circuit.

    how it happened.....

    it all happened because of the red sacred cloth ( holy laal duppata).normally we tend to tie this cloth/thread around steering...same thing was done by this guy on his linea and every time he use to rotate his steering this cloth used to get mangled and keeps tightening the wires which goes underneath the steering and resulted wiring cut problem...

    It is quite normal , in FIATs and many other cars. It is not an issue, just a minor niggle. When we turn the steering to its extreme ends , the pressure and stress on the power steering pump is at the max , and that leads to certain vibrations.

    This has been discussed in another thread , but couldn't find it.

    Make it a practice not to rotate the steering to its extreme position. Keep it , say 95% of its max turning position. And if at all you have to turn it to the max , make sure it is not for an extended period of time. Only for a few seconds max.

    First culprit can be door striker black plastic getting worn out and second culprit can be the loose power window switch panel

    Varoon,

    While driving, hold the door tight towards you (using the door handle) and see if the rattle noise goes away.. if the noise does go away, then its the door latch that is causing the rattle.. I faced a similar issue and this is what I found out..
