Squeaking/creaking noise from the dash when turning the wheel (video included)

Hi everyone
Hoping someone has an idea what this issue could be. This is a 2007 328XI.

Please have a look at the video and let me know if you have any thoughts! I recently put in Koni FSDs (if anyone thinks that may have anything to do with it ?)



As mentioned in the video this noise started occurring when the temp dipped below ~40F. I have never noticed this on warm days. It's most noticeable when parking and when stationary. My guess on that is because you don't often go to the "extreme" end of the steering range during regular driving.

The noise sounds like it is coming from under the dash, drivers side. Directly in front of the driver.

I tried doing this already:

Did not seem to help.

Thanks in advance everyone!

You got me.....that sound like walking slowly on a plywood floor.

I recommend getting someone else to turn the steering wheel while you get under it and try to pin point it.

I'm experiencing something similar. Did you ever get this resolved?

I have the same issue

This just started a few weeks ago, and it is driving me crazy. I've taken it to a local BMW dealer, but they "can't hear the noise." They must be deaf...

Guys it's more than likely something loose under the car. Jack it up and when you do make sure there's weight on the wheels. Have someone turn the wheel and isolate where the noise is coming from. I had something similar happen and it turned out my steering rack was loose so it was moving back and forth. Took me a total of 15 minutes to fix.

As stated before, jack it up and start checking everything.
IMHO, it is most likely the sway brace or the sway bar needs re-torqued.
