    Strange whirring noise

    ladies and Gents

    ive just noticed this whirring sound in the S3, it seems to only be at low speeds that it is mainly noticable, and when turning it seems to get worse
    Although with it parked up feathering the throttle you can here it slightly as the engine returns to idle

    Cant say i have noticed any performance change at all,

    And i cant hear it when i'm outside the car.

    Could this be the power steering pump on its way out???

    any ideas??

    Its 1999 pre-face S3 APY

    Cheers
