    bubbling sound when at full steering lock

    hi

    i've been finding myself doing a lot of 3-point-turns lately, and yesterday, when i had both windows down, i was doing one, and at full lock, i could heard a bubbling sound coming from somewhere??? a better way to describe it would be imagine something very high pressure and there is a very tiny leak, the bubbling sound the tiny leak would make.

    can anyone advise me on this? is this a big deal? should i get it checked out? what kind of costs could i be looking at ? obviously safety is a big thing for me so if driving with this is unsafe please let me know!!!

    like i say, the bubbling sound is only ever there when at FULL steering lock.


    cheers in advance everyone

    so does it make the noise whilst stationary or when actually moving on full lock, check the steering fluid see if its going down
