    Default Whirring until I turn steering wheel.

    Hi Guys,
    I've tried working through this and I've tried searching but nobody seems to have had my situation yet with my engine.

    Awful whirr sound from start which only disappears when I turn steering wheel or "stress" steering system. I have checked fluid and it is at the top.

    Engine is a 1.8 vvt in a 55 plate facelift (Z18XER?)

    Really hoping it will be something like a belt tensioner but have no conclusive proof of this or how easy it is to swap.

    Any ideas please?
