Not sure about the problem you have but have you checked the Power steering pump. Go full lock one way, then full lock the other way. You'll hear the grinding noise then as it's the pump. It's quite normal, according to Ford. My old fezzi (Mk5) did it.

Hope this helps.

Somewhere in the 'region' of approximately £140 for both sides to be replaced. ( never had fiesta ones done yet but i replaced my cavaliers front springs twice in 7 years...the conditions of our roads are atrocious! )
