Question about 2006 Land Rover Range Rover
This noise comes and goes, when I Im in traffic sreams like metal to metal and some times no noise. I though was the pully but I cant hear any noise coming form there . Any Ideas
Likely your power steering pump.... turn the wheel all the way right to the stop.... keep pulling it against the stop while it makes the noise... turn it back to center... check the level of the power steering fluid... then repeat it in the other direction... that bleeds air out of the system... if it still does it then it's either the pump or the rack and pinion (the steering gear). there is one other thing... have someone watch the serpentine belt while the steering wheel is turned... if the belt "jumps" it's loose and likely the tensioner has failed
Please take a moment to rate this solution.

I'd like you to check the brakes.
Sounds like the brake linings are getting thin, on the brake pads.
There is a metal tab that comes off of each pad, and usually has a thick plastic tip. This metal tab touches the rotors, once the lining is worn down. It's a type of warning device, telling you to change the pads.
One does not want to neglect this, as the metal tab's plastic will wear off, allowing the metal tab itself to touch the rotor. The metal tab will start 'eating' into the rotor, causing damage.
It will make score marks, that can turn into deep gouges.
Sometimes the rotor can be turned, (Faced off with a brake lathe), and the rotor will still be serviceable.
(Rotors have a Minimum thickness. If it is thinner than this thickness, it Must be replaced)
Wait too long,and you'll be replacing the rotors. $$$$ for a Land Rover!
