Default Reversing while turning squeal from front end.

Hi

My Sprinter started making a funny noise when reversing a few weeks ago. If you reverse while turning there is a squeal / squeak from the front wheel area. Just like something is rubbing. Doesnt happen if wheels are straight. However it does it on full or partial lock.
No abnormal noise while going forward.
I have had a quick look for anything obvious however haven't got round to a thorough investigation yet.
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what the issues could be?

Many thanks Dave
:cool:

tie rods, ball joints, and so on, spray a bit of wd 40 on each one at the time to find the culprit

you might just be turning the wheel too much. on mine if you gently turn the wheel all the way just until you feel resistance, it wont squeak. If you turn it all the way with force until the steering hits the steering stops, the belt starts squealing on the power-steering pulley.

I do agree with mr bond, I thought that was another kind of squeaky sound, because I thought what mr bond says was too obvious to tell, my bad.
