Creaking steering 147

I have a creaking noise when turning steering wheel, seems to be coming from under bonnet, it sounds as if something needs lubricating?

Any ideas as to what this is and how I go about fixing it?

It could be any one of the following:-

Top ball joint.
Bottom ball joint.
Track rod end ball joint.
Power steering pump.

Do you have a mate who is knowledgeable with cars. It should be relatively easy to identify where the problem is.

Impossible to tell without finding the culprit. So I would start by finding the cause and then report back here and get advice on the next step

Mine does this , jack up the front and put it on axle stands. Get somebody to move the steering while you listen. Mine is the bottom ball joint. Good luck
