First time posting here. My 2000 XC70 AWD has been making a strange squealing sound when steering. When the car is still cold, there will be no noise at all, but after the car warms up, it will squeak when i turn the wheel. I speculate this might be a power steering pump on the fritz, but maybe you guys can point me in another direction.

A squeak or a squeal? <br>I have seen the rubber boot around the steering column at the firewall squeak when cold. If it is that you can lube it up with some spray silicone or similar.<p>If it is a squeal it may be the pump itself.

Re: Strange steering noise (lobby)

A worn serpentine belt can cause a squeak/squeal
