Hi, just wondering if anyone knows if their steering is same as mine on an fr sport 1 litre 19 reg, when I'm reversing slowly out of a parking space my steering sounds squelchy as I'm turning the wheel its the only way I can describe it, I've had other cars with power steering and never heard it

Seat uses Electric powersteering... there are no belts that need replacing or can make noise.
Is it not the tires that make the noise ?

I have had similar in multi-storey car parks where surface is painted, that is definitely a screeching tyre noise.

As it is only happening when turning, I would get wheel alignment checked first (any fast fit tyre centre, don’t pay a main dealer to do it). A pothole might have knocked alignment off. Get tyre pressures checked at same time. I suspect it also happens at higher speed as well but road noise drowns that out.
