power steering ticking

just got a Ba xr6 with 40,000kms on the clock. It makes a weird tick or clicky kind of noise when I steer it in tight corners at slow speed, parking etc. any idea what that could be??

I know two things. Jack S***t. And Jack just left town

Re: power steering ticking

If it's happen's on full lock, I think they do this normally your not susposed to have it on full lock, as the owner's manual states, have you checked the fluid level?.

No, it loads up the pump too much. Won't kill it anytime soon, but it's not the best for the bearings either, apparently.
