    Did a full PS flush and reservoir clean. Squeal went away, but now it’s back only at full lock.

    I did have to replace the belts (see other embarrassing post). Could the belt be loose?

    I have read some people say the pump whines at full lock and just forget about it.

    Should I bada bing and fu get about it or keep digging?

    yes
    What exactly does it sound like?

    What fluid did you use? Have you checked the level again after some driving?

    Havent really driven it as I am waiting for center shaft bearing to get replaced.

    Fluid level is good according to dip stick

    Sounds like things are dying and a little buzz can be felt in the wheel. It’s almost like playing Operation and I just touched a side if that makes sense
