I parked up at a local shop and left the car on full lock to the left. When i re started the car and selected reverse i got a very nasty grating grinding noise and the car seemed to judder a little At first i thought it was from the gearbox but when i leant forward it sounded more like it was coming from the steering box area. The odd thing is, it only does it in reverse. I put it into D and the noise stopped. Back into reverse and there it was again And it only does it on full lock to the left.


The sound was bloody awful, like dry cogs or bearings grinding together

Also, as soon as i take it off full lock by even a tiny amount, the noise goes away

Check the steering fluid. It may be low.
