Wooshing noise - power steering?

My car's developed a strange 'wooshing' noise when turning the wheel at low speeds/when stationary.

It's constant for the duration of the wheel turn.

It may happen at higher speed, but I can't hear it.

I guess it's some thing to do with the power steering, possibly fluid, pump, or belt or something.

Just wondering if anyone has come across this before?

I've had a quick search, but can't see exactly the same symptoms.

Re: Wooshing noise - power steering?

Have you checked the fluid levels? Noise is usually lack of fluid :O. The reason why it's low will be another question!

If it's not low, then the pump'll be shot...
