My Bora TDI 130 ASZ started screeching when driving with the steering on hard lock. This happens especially in reverse. I thought it was the fan belt or tensioner. I never fixed it and now a year later, the screeching starts on hard lock but now also when I'm trying to get the engine to pull too high a gear - e.g. turning a corner in third gear or whatever.

Does anyone know if this problem is definitely the tensioner and if so, is it a big job and does anyone have recommendations for parts?
Any help would be much appreciated.

this sounds like its the power steering belt , check the pulley and check your powersteering fluid level , id think that its a power steering issue
