The steering on my 1996 3.7ltr A8 has got quite noisy lately. It had
occasionally, in recent years, made a deep vibrating noise when
turning left into my drive. But recently, higher pitched vibrating
noises are coming from behind the steering wheel. These seem tyre
pressure sensitive. Should I be bracing myself for the price of a new
rack all the stuff that goes with it?

Try getting steering system filled through with new fluid (MINERAL only) and purged of any air.
Air can cause these noises. Is fluid level OK? as may be pulling air into system if too low.
:rolleyes:
