I've owned my used 2009 Passion for about 6 months and started hearing a new noise. Everyone has their own "noise" description but it sounds like a broken horn mainly when turning left. I'm guessing it's the EPS. It seems to be getting worse. Is this repairable?

Broken horn? I thought a broken horn did not make any noise.

Sorry, I know that's no help. Noises are hard close up and nearly impossible remotely.

It's only when steering hard left or right. Sounds like an old school steering pump belt is whining.

The 'power steering' is electronic so it doesn't have a belt or is even connected to the motor. could still be a bad motor for the assist
