frown Whine from front end when turning

Hi all.

My BAXR6 has developed a very strange whine fron the front end when I turn Left or right the problem is it won't do it every time Doh !! which makes it bloody hard for the boys at Herrod to try and find and fix they are doing a really exellent job trying to find it but it will only do it now and again.

It dose'nt seem to matter wheather I am goping slow or fast braking or accelrating just every now and again it lets out this bloody horriable whineing noise from the front end any ideas as to where to look would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Wayne.

Re: Whine from front end when turning

Well only going by the sound, I'd say it would be the power steering pump.
But I'm only going off what a mates e-series did.

Re: Whine from front end when turning

Sounds like a steering pump problem, but Rob and his boys at hios shop should have looked at that. If not then take it to a dealer. No offense to Rob and his boys, but ask if that is or was an issue?

If it is not the steering pump it could well be a slipping belt

Same as the whining noise in my AU XR6, yes, it's gotta be the steering pump.
