Hi all i have a fiesta on a 51 reg 2001 1.3 endura e engine when i full lock to the left i hear like a squeeling noise but when i full lock to the right i don't hear notthing so just wondering what could this be. i have phoned up my local garage and he said its normal on the fiesta when on full lock can this be true thanks alan.

Might simply be the PAS Belt under strain. I believe that it winds around many pullys ( Waterpump, pas, etc).
I had a 98 escort which did the same and my mechanic friend said it was the belt and it needed changing. Sold it before i did so can't say if true or not ?

Hope this helps a little.

Yeh its like a rusted door being open but ive had my tracking done the other day and its seems to stoped but the man in the garage said my tracking was way out so the noise might of been that i don't know.
