Your fan belt is slipping. As you turn the wheel you make a power demand on the power steering compressor. This compressor takes its power from the fan belt so as you steer the compressor shaft is harder to rotate and the belt slips as a result. The fan belt should be adjustable by loosening the alternator bolts and moving the alternator away form the engine and than re-tightening the bolts. Check that the fan belt is not worn, if there are obvious signs of wear or cracking then renewal would be the best step. Always make a sketch of the path of the belt around the respective engine pulleys before removing it.

Squeeky windows and front seats


Go to the auto parts store and ask for advice (They are usually very helpful especially Advanced Auto Parts) or purchase a can of dw40 or similar lubricating product and spray the seat metal joints under the seat.
As to the window, if it's squeaking where the glass meets the rubber spray the rubber or treat it with armor all.

Hope this helps!
Let me know!
