Your car is equipped with electric steering so you do not have a fluid reseviour. Is the noise a grinding sound or could it be a squeak or creaking noise when turning?

Grinding
Nissan Mechanic: EricFromCT, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

Ok. THat is likely caused by the steering motor on the steering rack. If you could try and isolate the noise to the steering gear motor then that will verify if that is where the grinding is coming from.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
