Hi everyone,
Just joined up.

hoping to resolve something.

I have a 54plate 2.0 TDCi Zetec. I have started to notice an occasionalwhiney sound when i turn the steering wheel when parking. sounds like a pump strain. has anyone else had this problem or know what it is?

Does this happen on full lock, or just when moving very slowly?
I know that every car that I have had with power steering, if on full lock while stationary, it will whine until you slightly release it.
And are you also turning the steering while stationary This can cuase tyre noise
No im not turning the wheels when stationary.

I know there will always be the standard whinny noise with powersteering, but there is a more loader noise that happens for a bit. I didnt know if anyone else had the same noise. Might just be a normal thing?
