Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2012 Lincoln MKX makes a loud, "hooting" squeeking noise if the steering wheel is turned to the left or right, only after being in park. When the wheel is straightened after turning, noise proceeds for 8 seconds or so then stops.  It almost sounds like it's coming from the front or rear hub. I had a dealership check the car out, and they can't find anything wrong with the car in the suspension.  Any ideas on what could be causing this would be helpful.

Power steering pump?

Ours is doing similar. Did you ever figure yours out? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi GuruCHXFN, Yes! Before the noise had occurred, I had My brake rotors and pads replaced a few months prior. The dealership forgot to grease the brake pad clips. It took another dealership to determine that this was the use.
