Steering noises

Hallo. I experience a noise and vibration on my 2016 110, on the steering wheel. This only occurs when I turn the wheel to the left, not always at the same place in the turning circle, and worsens when friction is worse, e.g. at low (parking) speeds. This never happens when driving at normal speeds or on smooth surfaces e.g. cement floors. To date the pump on the steering, as well as the steering box have been replaced, but to no avail. LR South Africa tells me this is normal (???)

Any opinions/advice? Thank you!

Loose wheel bearing, bad CV joint? No real way to diagnose across the internet. As you are in warranty, you are at the mercy of the dealer.

? Normal

Thank you red. What bothers me is that I am told this is within normal limits for the vehicle.... That is why I wanted to know if others also have been experiencing the same.

Revert to your basics and branch out an investigation from there.
As John explains no one here will be able to say your problem is precisely "such and such" with any accuracy.
So start by checking the front diff to make sure it is full of oil, then check the steering fluid levels, then check all the tie rod ends for tightness and for excessive play. ie defective components.
Then check all the linkages for something bent that will bind, look for the whole works to be adjusted to far one side and not the other, and so on.
If the dealer is discounting your issues, then take ownership.
Consider paying a non-dealer Land Rover specialist to identify the problem if all else fails.
