Skoda Yeti steering column making clicking noise

I own a Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI and there is a clicking noise which manifests itself on extreme lock. This is intermittent and only started at 1400 miles. The dealer says it's normal, and they will therefore not take any action. They acknowledge that there is a noise from the CV joint. I don't believe they are right. Do you think it's normal?

They are right. Never, ever use significant acceleration at full lock. Best always to wind a bit of lock off after hitting the lock stops before letting out the clutch.
