Winter weather and interior squeals


Recommended Posts

I have an MKX which is starting to embarrass me when I'm carrying certain passengers because every time I start, stop or open the drivers door, it emits some agonizing sound. I've traced the loud start/stop squeal to the power steering column moving in and out as part of the automatic seat positioning. It started in cold weather and continues now in much warmer weather. Probably some lubrication issue but the dealer claims they haven't had any reports of that. Anyone else encounter this?


Opening the door causes a different sound, kind of like an expulsion of air and a gasp as if my internal air pressure is too high. Some people have commented that my MKX might be possessed.
