Squeaky steering

A little advice please. I’ve put this in the right section now

I recently noticed that my steering is squeaking on my E85 when making slow speed/parking manoeuvres, it may have been there before but I’ve not noticed it and being new to Z4 ownership not sure if it’s common and what the cause may be?

If you are stationary and rotate the wheel 1/4 turn or so left and right it makes this squeaking sound.

Any experience and or cures advice would be appreciated.

I’ve got a similar issue but only when the car is warm, car hadn’t been used for a few weeks, after a few searches and a post on here I started with checking tyre pressure, fronts were below where it should be and once inflated the noise stopped, car then went another 2 weeks without moving and the noise has returned so thinking it’s more likely to need a bit of lubrication, just need to get myself a jack and a dry day as don’t have a garage.

Ps : mines the whale sound!
