Hi markol

You might get more of a response if you post your question in the technical lounge. It's a bit hidden away up here chap

Re: 147 noise

How many miles has the car done?

When you turn the steering wheel one way does it sound a bit like "niiiiiii"? It did on my 145 at 145k miles. Power steering pump on its way out.

Probably just a bit low on power steering fluid, top it up and donít worry about it to much.

Re: 147 noise

Top up the fluid and see what happens, if nothing then i would have thought your pump is on the way out. I only get a noise when its in full lock but as far as i am aware that is normal......
