Has any one noticed a noisy steering pump? When you turn the engine off it sounds like a plane shutting down.The noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel ? ( 1.4 TFSI ) :?

I am getting this too, at low speed you can hear a whine which changes when you turn the wheel (and you can hear it over the noise of the diesel engine :shock: ) And a perfect description from the OP, when you turn the engine off it sounds like a jet engine shutting down.

Is this normal or should I be worried, from this thread it seems like its only a few cars doing it so its not normal, I dont remember any of the cars I test drove doing it.

Is anyone else having this??

Those that have posted previously (its been a while since any posts in this thread):

Has it got any worse/better or have you had it rectified at the dealers??

i think it is a little bit worse. i went again to my local dealer and they said to me that this is not a problem. they also offered to change the steering pump, under warranty, but they are not sure that the new pump will be quiter. i think that i will wait a little more and if the noise gets stronger i will change it.
