Does any one have their steering column on auto so it raises when you open the door?

I ask, because after the steering wheel has raised fully, a couple of seconds later you hear a sound of a mechanism or motor, it sounds similiar to a 'quack.' Is this normal?

I have mine on auto and the only noise is the electric motor when the column rises and falls - and only when in motion, nothing after it has stopped.

May be worth getting it checked.

That's the steering lock I think (the thing stopping you turning the wheel to make it harder to steal), when you turn the car off or get in or turn the ignition on (something like that) the electric steering lock mechanism engages/disengages with a 'wwaack' noise. S-Type makes the same noise when you put the key in the ignition.
