Okay. Well that's a different kind of sound then.

Could be the power steering belt/pulley/tensioner or one of the other pulleys or tensioners. They're at the front of the engine behind the radiator.

Can you get it to make the sound while stationary and turning the steering wheel to the right? Have you checked the power steering fluid?

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
