'07 LS; EPS, 60K miles
I have an intermittent clunk/clack/grinding noise on low-speed turns. (Intermittent as in, sometimes it won't make the noise for days, while other times it's every slow turn.) It's louder inside the car than out. The noise doesn't seem to depend on turning angle. So, from what I've read, it seems likely the EPS motor is bad. AFAICT, the EPS recall has been done, some years before I bought the car.
Q1: If I pull the EPS out, is it possible to see if it's failed? Like, will a bad one show significant play in the motor shaft?
Q2: RockAuto has a rebuild for $28 (+$10 core + shipping, ... but still.) If anyone has experience with these, I'd appreciate hearing.
