Sqeal at steering full lock

Hi guys,

I noticed a strange sqeeking noise while being max-left or max-right with the steering wheel. It's pretty loud and it's only present when i hold the wheel maximum left or right (if i let it go back just a little, the noise disappears).

After driving a friend's 320d i decided to take mine in for a check, because mine has that strange noise at full steering lock and his doesn't.

The guys at the dealer said they would replace the engine (damper) pulley, the belt and some rollers, all covered by warranty.

My question is - could the engine pulley cause this kind of noise? I insisted they check the power steering pump but they seemed pretty sure they pulley is causing the noise.

Car has 30,000km (18,700 miles) on the clock.

Your feedback would be much appreciated.
