Squeaking when turning wheel

So this has been a recent issue since I got my rims put on before I went back overseas after R&R, but I'm completely sure it's not a rubbing issue. When I turn my wheel to the left and right at a certain point I can hear a squeaking noise coming from the engine bay. I had someone else turn the wheel while I stuck my head down by the steering shaft and it sounds like that is what is makng the noise. Doesn't sound like its the rack and pinion or a power steering pump chatter and my reservoir for the fluid is full too. Anyone have any insight on this?

Ya dude after 2 weeks having my brand new ss and it started to do that it's not your rims rubbing. I forgot what exactly what happens but I know once you bring it to your dealer they are gonna have to order something to fix it! I mine hasn't done it since!

Thanks for the info. I'm not home for a few months but if you can find out exactly what it was that'll help out in the long run.

Greetings Frid,

I'm sorry about the squeaking you hear when turning the wheel. I know that must be displeasing for you. Have you considered taking your vehicle in to have this concern diagnosed? I'd be more than happy to schedule an appointment for you. Feel free to message me for additional assistance! I'd look forward to interacting with you.

Best regards,

William R.

The same courtesy extends to you. Please keep us updated on the diagnosis at the dealership. Let me know if you have additional questions and feel free to send over a message if so.

Many/most cars will make power steering noise when you get to the end of the movement (ie: near lock), especially if the car is not moving. As increased load is placed on the pump at extremes.

Anyone got any more info about this? Overseas, so I can't take the car into a shop to have it checked out. When the windows are rolled up, I can heard a clatter sound when I hit a bump too whether it be a small or big one.

I had the same issue with my 2011 Camaro RS, only has 11,500 miles on the car, started to make a squeaky noise and feel when turning the steering wheel left or right, took it to the dealer today and they said I needed a new rack and pinion, I said wow really I baby my care and with such low mileage, just hope this is just a one time issue with this car.
