Updated steering shaft replacement video:
Wow so this bulletin is for the 2nd generation 2019-20 macan? So basically this issue is still ongoing?Here's the service bulletin explaining fix:
Thank you, I will try to put the full court press to get a new intermediate shaft lubed and installed over getting my current intermediate shaft lubed and reinstalled.I recommend you ask for a new Steering Wheel Intermediate shaft & have them lube it with krytox “work in on the bench” b4 installing it. I think the pertinent P/Ns are 95B-419-753-D, Torx Screw WHT-004-955-A.
This is what fixed my squeak the 3rd visit & 1 year later....silent.
If they lube the H377 out of the new shaft BEFORE they put it in, they have easy access & can do a thorough job.
Let them know you are very particular Re centered s.w & steering feel & right now that is perfect.
Which is why I sent my SA the link to this. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2020/MC-10173041-0001.pdfI really doubt Porsche would remove your shaft, lube it & reinstall. They would lube it in place, through the hole in the firewall, in 5-10 minutes. Easy for them. IMO this is inadequate. Unless it was done every month or 2, LOL... Maybe until your warranty expired.
I also think when they replace the shaft with a new one, they do not do any lube but I'm not sure. Probably lubed at factory.
Mine is MY2016 & after having it "fixed" 2x & the squeak came back, I was searching for a better solution so I asked my Shop foreman many questions. What type of lube, how that lube reacts to hot temperatures & many more. I came up with the idea for the tech to lube the replacement shaft, a lot, anywhere that 1 thing rubs against another b4 it is installed. I thought he would roll his eyes but he thought it a good idea & instructed the tech to do just that in writing.
IDK if mine will start squeaking again but the last 2 fixes had the squeak resume in a few months & now I'm @ 1 year & squeak free.
Dealership replaced my intermediate steering shaft, but the squeaking still comes back occasionally, when it's really hot outside. I'm sick of going back and forth to the dealership, probably like the 4th time this year. So I will address it when I do my next oil change. It doesn't really affect any driving dynamics, it's just annoying.Glad I found this thread - noticed this issue upon delivery of a 2020 S - Very noticeable loud creaking noise when backing, turning out of driveways every time. Figured it just needed to be broken in but 7 months in still there. Will def. be addressing at my next service appt. Fingers crossed dealer can solve.
I had this issue and used the Dupont teflon lubricant Amazon.com : DuPont Teflon Non-Stick Dry-Film Lubricant Squeeze Bottle, 4 Oz. : Bike Oils : Sports & OutdoorsI've noticed this issue popping up on my Macan now too - good to know it's nothing serious and a minor annoyance. There's been a few suggestions around lubing it up around the steering shaft rubber seal, but I'm not quite sure what the best lubricant would be to do this myself. I have a few types laying around, but I'm mostly concerned about degrading the rubber, less concerned about having to do it every year or so.
Thanks for any tips!
Great stuff. I use it on my chain on the Ducati.I had this issue and used the Dupont teflon lubricant Amazon.com : DuPont Teflon Non-Stick Dry-Film Lubricant Squeeze Bottle, 4 Oz. : Bike Oils : Sports & Outdoors
Since then, no squeak, I sprayed it into the steering column down by where it enters the firewall and around the boot that covers the column,
