Hi,

Recently I have noticed with open the front windows a slight sound like a whistle when turning the steering wheel at low speeds i.e. when parking.

Is this something I should be worried about? I remember (I think) this wasn't happening before.

Any comments welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks.

Today I had the serpentine belt changed and also all tensioners were checked. The noise/"whistle" is not gone but is not so strong. The mechanic told me that if it won't dissapear after the belt change, then it might be the pumb of the hydraylic steering wheel.
Any other suggestions what to have checked?

Today I had the steering wheel fluid changed with original from Audi full flashed. The noise/"whistle" again is not gone, it's there but not so strong. The mechanic told me that if it won't dissapear after the fluid change, then it might be the valve of the rack and pinion power steering. He also told me that the rack and pinion power steering is not repairable.
Any other suggestions what to have checked?
