Growling noise!

Started getting a growling noise from the engine couldn't pin point where it was coming from. Most likely from the front. Either way I got a stethoscope and tested all accessory drives found out it was the Power Steering pump.

Make some effort to localise he sound in the engine bay. Front back top bottom etc. Does it change when you rev? Can you hear it under load. Checked your fluids? If you don't know what to tell people are you going to be able to fix it anyway?

No need to edit your first post... for anyone that is going to read this thread won't know what you posted. How can they fix their issue if they had the same thing you did but you deleted the info, lol.
