Hello all! I have this intermittent grinding noise coming from what i assume is the steering pump/box. At first i thought it while in motion and turning the wheel to the left but its very intermittent and i actually noticed it did it today while motionless. It only happens when turning the wheel to the left and when the noise starts, it goes away if i keep the wheel turning or if i release the wheel and let it center. The noise will stay if i hold it in that position, but if i release the wheel and go back to the position that was previously making noise its silent! I'm stumped on this one.
the dealers down here a real pain in the ass so I'm trying to avoid going there if at all possible. I have checked fluid levels and made sure the reservoir is not clogged up with junk. Its a 2010 rubicon with a 2.5" Teraflex lift and 35's. I recorded a video of it if you have 20 seconds please check it out and input any advice.
Thanks again everyone.
