Screeching sound while turning

Post by Yaworski » Sun Nov 10, 2019 8:10 am

2002 S60, about 170,000 miles.

My car started making a screeching sound when making a tight turn, such as turning into a parking spot. It sounds like it is coming from the left front.

It screeches with or without brakes.

Normally, I don't hear it when the car has been sitting for a while and is cooled down. So leaving for work, no screech. Get to work, screech.

My mechanic has looked a couple times but can't find anything. The bearing seem find. The brakes are fine.

Any thoughts?

There is a similar noise from a generic power steering pump. It is from the fluid cavitating. Do you know that you are not making this?

Another possibility if you have those?

The noise only happens when the car is moving. I would think that steering pump noise would happen with car moving or sitting still.

Also, sometimes the noise happens when the steering isn't at or near full lock.

Aha. Not near full lock counts this symptom out. Sorry for misleading.

I would check your power steering - look for leaks and fluid level and condition.

Then I would look at the bearing that is on the steering column. You need to remove the plastic piece and pull back the carpet. This is a common source of noise, but I wouldn't call it a screech. Worth a look.
