I am hoping that someone out there has had this simular problem. When the car interior is cold, the is a real rattle coming from the steering column area. If I bang on the steering wheel i can generate the noise...until the interior warms up and then it goes away. Whe the car is cold...it rattles all the time (simple vibration from running).
I know that rattles are something that could be anything...but if someone has had something simular...I will start with their suggestion first.
