HI. You power steering fluid level may be low at this point, a quick inspection of the fluid level, will be in order, if possible. Once you have verified that the fluid level is sufficient, move on to the actual power steering belt and unit. Make sure the belt is tight, and rotating the pulley. If the fluid level is low, be sure to fill to specifications.
Now, If the pulley and belt are rotating without a wobble, and the fluid level is sufficient, this will lead to a failed pump. The pump should be replaced in this case. Make sure you exhaust all inspections points mentioned before replacing the pump.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the answer I was looking for. Low on fluid, now hoping it's not a leak."
SOURCE: There is a noise coming
I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperature was cold and they heard the noise. It ended up bing the steering rack.

SOURCE: The Power steering is stiff
First, when diagnosing any suspension steering stuff a good place to start looking is to see if you have any loose or worn parts in the front end of car.,
Jack each tire off ground, give it a pull up and down, and side to side and see if there is any clunking or any excessive play side to side or up or down. If there is, have a friend repeat the movements and look with at the ball joints, tie rod ends, and struts.
Check for wetness around the tie rods. This could mean you have a steering rack issue. Next, check fluid level and color in power steering resevoir under hood. If dirty have this flushed.
Hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck!
