Power steering creak?

I recently noticed when turning the steering wheel from lock to lock in a stationary position, a creak noise is audible from the front end for about a second. Power steering fluid level is at max, any ideas what it could be ?

Creak or a whine noise? I had the same issue. Had the dealership check it out while they were doing other recalls. They said my power steering pump needs replaced and that it's not covered by warranty.

Mines making more of a whining noise. I have this nice Jeep and then when I turn the wheel while stopped, it makes the same horrible noise my sister's Ford Fiesta made back in 1995. It's embarrassing to say the least.

However, I did have a creak noise that sounded similar to that. It was a bent A arm plate. I took it off and straightened it back out. No more creak. Also, I bent mine with my jack. I know another member said a tire shop did something similar to theirs. I don't think that is your problem. Mine only made that noise when I would turn into my drive way. Your best bet is to get under there, have some one turn the wheel back and forth and see if you can hear exactly where it's coming from.
