Steering pump squeeking 1999 Liberty Subaru Heritage RX

Every time I turn the car on and go to turn the steering wheel to get out of a parking spot there is a huge squeeking noise right up until I straighten the car up again? Does this mean the steering pump has gone and how do I fix this problem. As my partner would like to give it a go in fixing if easy to do?

You might have a loose fan belt on the steering pump, check this out first, it might not be a bearing in the steering pump.

your steering wheel lock is connected to ignition in column, pull hard on steering wheel in direction wheels are turned at the same time turn key, this should free them both up.

My 99 subaru legacy 2.5 feels like its going to stall when im turning at slow speeds like about to park.


if you are turning the wheel all the way until it stops then you are putting the steering pump in a bind cuasing the engine to slow down more causing the engine to stall ,,, recommend you turn the steering wheel all the way you are going until the wheel stops and then back the other way a little bit to stop this binding,, shoulsd stop your problem

1999 Subaru Forster Noise


My first reaction to what you describe is the front CV joints. If worn these will click quite loudly on a slow hard turn such as in a parking lot. The steering vibration is probably wheel balance and although not related, one can make the other worse. First off ckeck your front wheels for bends or curb damage. Check the tyres for uneven wear, bulges, or blisters on the side walls and beneath the tread. Check your front brake rotors for scoring and grooving. And check around the front axles inside the front wheels for thrown grease. Check the boots on the CV joints for splits or other damage and deterioration. If you find all or any of these things, have your mechanic give you a price to replace the faulty components. We usually use rebuilt CV joint assemblies, on an exchange basis.

Unable to unlock ignition switch


Did you park on a hill or in a tight parking spot with your steering wheel cranked to one side?
Try turning the steering wheel (will be very hard to do) as you put the key in the ignition and try to turn the key on, if that doesn't work, try turning the wheel the other way while turning on the key.
