Question about 1996 Audi A6
Hi! THe grinding noise will surely be inside the transmission. I strongly suggest that you have it look at by your trusted mechanic for theres a big possibility that it's grinding inside. Im pretty sure that metal dusts from the grinding transmission is present so you will need to have the filter replaced too. Thank you for using FixYa!

The grinding happens because the rack that is supposed to lock the shaft doesn't engage and the noise you hear is caused by the teeth of the rack brushing the splines of the shaft. Since the steering lock is also faulty that means that the linkage from the transmission shifter is faulty, out or position and must be readjusted. It's a shop job, you need to get underneath the car for that and in this case it will be dangerous to do it at home.
