I get a loud screeching (sounds similar to a belt slipping) when I turn my steering right, it appears to be coming from the rack or that area. My fluid reserve is full and I'm confused why it only happens when I turn right?
Would the control arm bush failure cause this?
see my question about a wheel bearing failure.....if your left bearing has failed, then your car will make a humming noise when you turn right....(and vice versa)... If the noise GOES away when you turn LEFT, that means your right bearing is OK, but your left one is causing the trouble...
test it by driving in a straight line and then turning left then right....
The parts for such a repair (if it IS indeed the wheel bearing) will run approx $125. Labor may be DIY or a mechanic - your choice.
