ForTwo steering rack sounds

Now that my car’s driven over 20,000km, I’ve noticed that my steering rack makes a low burping or flatulence (as the queen would say). It’s almost like some air is trapped somewhere and it’s being pushed around as I turn the steering wheel.

I can only hear it when I don’t have the radio on. Has anyone else come across this? I’ll book it in soon to the garage soon…

Mine has always been like this!

Turns out the sound was the gasket on the steering rack. The sound can apparently become more noticeable during the summer because of the heat. They simply greased the gasket again and the sound went away.
