new 2021 JLU sport. Notice a creak from about 0-5degrees clockwise. Anyone else get that? Works fine otherwise .

@Docbroke digging this up as I have the same issue. Did you ever get this resolved?

Edit: not been active since December. I’m probably not getting a response.

I have the same issue with my 2021 JL. Had it “fixed” at the dealership once already. Their fix was to spray some silicone spray. Came back even worse a few months later. It will be going back to the dealer next week for this as well as an persistent oil leak issue.

I spent about an hour trouble shooting this today. Took the steering wheel off and looked at everything I could see that moved.

I then took the kick panel off and looked at the linkage that goes down into the firewall and I think this is where it’s coming from. I held on to the shaft while I turned the wheel and could “feel” the creaking. I sprayed some lubricant at the joint near the firewall, seems to have maybe helped a little. It’s hot as hell here, so I stopped for now but will look into it more at some point.
