Fiat 500 Steering Clunk Fix

Fiat 500C Dashboard


Fiat has released a technical service bulletin that addresses an annoyance some owners of 2012 -2015 Fiat 500 hatchback and Cabrio have been experiencing. Fiat owners may have noticed an occasional noise or clunk while turning the steering wheel. This can happen when the car is sitting still and the driver turns the steering wheel left and right or when driving slowly and doing the same maneuver.

The sound manifests itself as a clunking, popping, or knocking noise emanating from the lower steering column while turning the steering wheel. If this is the case, the fix involves replacing the steering intermediate shaft. It is a simple repair that normally requires about a half hour to complete on most 500 models and just over an hour on 500e all-electric vehicles.

Contact your Fiat dealer for more details.
