Default Getz Power Steering problem

I need one info
Power steering of my Getz was giving some kat kat sound and at full turn (Max you can turn) it gives some sound
Shown to Trident and it is issue with some shaft for power steering. Car comes under extended warranty. As per trident it needs to be changed
My question is power steering shaft comes under extended warranty.

^^Why don't you read the fine print of the extended warranty booklet. It will be mentioned there under the components that are covered. AFAIK, steering components are covered under the extended warranty scheme. I replaced a steering component on my Esteem in 2003 under the extended warranty of two years that i had then.

I'd be closely monitoring this thread as my zen too has experiencing some kit kat sound when I take a full right. I got the PS checked. But nothing surfaced. So they did not go for an overhaul at MASS.

IIRC, only the defective component is covered under an extended warranty scheme. You will have to pay for labor and consumables that are part of the change.

If you got the PS checked and it is not the problem, then it could be with the drive shaft to the right wheel which is why you hear a soft kat kat kat noise when you take a full right turn. By the by, is your Zen the one with the electronic PS if I'm not mistaken? EPS systems are not prone to fail that easily.

Guess what he said the same thing about the EPS. Do I still need to check the drive shaft now ?

He is right. An EPS system is far more robust and less prone to fail when compared to a hydraulic system. Yup, a check of both drive shafts is a good idea.

In my car kat kat sound comes as soon as ignition is on and on seeing the engine bay it is suspected it is due to Power steering.
Also if you turn the steering extreme right or left large noise comes. Is it driver shaft issue
Trident yet to come back. They are waiting for an email from Hyundai

I have the similar issue on my santro too, when i turn the steering completely, i hear a click on each complete rotation, I thought it is the turn signal canceler switch. Is it serious? No other sounds or heavy steering though.

Click may be OK but I hear screeching noise without setting the indicator.
If it is coming without setting indicator then you can show it in next service.

Similar issue is noticed on my friends new i10 as well. The service senter has agreed to change the faulty component under extended warranty.However the labour has to be paid by the owner.
