there a post on D3 where by the steering column is lubricated at the side of the engine.
This may cause a short term fix and pin point the problem so a part (joint?) can be replaced,

Not sure its an exact match with your issue

I had a similar issue on my last rrs. Eventually it got worse, then resulted in excess play.
It turned out to be the universal joint. They cost around £50 and isn't to major to swap. MY12 RRS HSE

Must be the heat from the engine near the joint.
