I have just started to notice a whining or growning noise when I turn the steering wheel to the left. I also feel that the wheels are struggling to move and you can feel lack of power assist in the steering. My question is is this the pump or the rack? I have also checked the fluid level and it is fine. Thanks.

Your Tie rod ends are probably going. See if there is any play in them at the ball joints.

Is it rubber to rubber like sound?

Guessing you have about 60-80k on your car? Let us know model/specs
