Default Power Steering Problem

Merry Christmas, all!

My next door neighbor has a daughter who just drove up in her PT. Naturally, we got to talking Cruiser-stuff. She mentioned that her power steering was acting up. She can turn the wheel right and left, just fine; but when she turns either way--all the way--she starts hearing a squealing noise (like cars a long time ago when all power steering made this racket when you turned it too far in either direction).

I told her I'd ask on the forum--just in case someone knew the answer and could help her out a little.

It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile,
and one nut to scatter it all over the road
