when i'm steering after several hours of not driving, i can hear that kind of sharp noise made by slipping timing belts.

it only happens when i'm steering fast (tight spots movements) and only towards the end of the travel (wheel travel).

if i am steering progressively everything is ok. also, it goes away after a few feet.

where to look - and most important, why can cause this noise ?
