Hi Guys i need a bit of advice, im not sure if this is something major or not, but here goes

i drive a 93 EB2 Mont, its a great car but this one thing is niggling me, when i turn semi hard right such as on roundabouts going round to the other side the car makes a kind of rubbing noise,
its only when its a 3/4 lock turn no other time so it s when the wheel is pushed out to turn.the weight would be at the left front (passenger) side of the car as it goes round and thats the only time it happens. it sounds to me like it needs a bit of grease somewhere down there as the noise sounds like its a kinda dry sound that if it had a bit of lube there it would prevent it ( now i dont know much about cars but thats what i sounds like in the car) its not a click or shudder just a rubbing/groaning sound.
its really annoying as i like to have the car in tip top condition and i forget about it as i dont always turn like that!
does anyone have any advice or suggestions about what to do or where if its a lube problem i should apply some grease? or does it sound like a major problem? i have the car checked regularly and everything was fine at the service 2000k ago, it really does just sound like a dull rubbing noise.

thanks for your advice in advance guys,

If not too bad i.e.: REALLY noisy, can wait for a bit. Bearing maybe 30 bux, fitting by mechanic maybe 50 bux, max time 1 hr if he is slow.
