    A bit of a whining noise from the steering is normal as it's electro-hydraulic. If it's really bad then it may need looked at. Might be worth just checking that the steering fluid level is up at the right level.

    The rack is a sealed unit but there is a reservoir of fluid that needs to be checked. Any drop in fluid can indicate a leak and low fluid can result in more obvious noise when turning the wheel at low speeds/stationery. The momentary stiffness can also be a symptom of low fluid - so I'd definitely have a check that it's not low.
