Default squeaking sound when turning wheels

When I park or get out of a parking lot i sometimes have to turn my wheels all the way, at the end when i almost hit the max i hear this squeaking sound, when i don't turn as much i can't hear it.

anyone has the same problem or knows how to fix it?

I had something similar with my S80, although I would have described the sound as more of a grind/groan. The issue was that the brake fluid level was low - I topped this up and the noise dissapated completely. I think I may have semi-ruptured one of the brake fluid pipes driving on a poor quality road.

Check this first - it can't do any harm.

Hmm, interesting. I also have this grinding noise when I make sharp left turns only. I crawled underneath the tires but can't see any obstacles causing this. My brake fluid reservoir is full....

The tires will rub against the inner fender lining especially if you have purchased new tires. The dealer can install some rubber stops for the steering arms, not sure how much though.
