I have a 2001 Audi S4. It makes a loud squeaking noise when I turn the
steering wheel and drive very slowly. It happens every time I parallel
park. The mechanic said it's nothing to worry about, but it's really
embarrasing and I would like to get it fixed. Does any happen to know
what could be causing this noise and how I could fix it?

That description matches symptoms I had on my last car (a BMW). The
first time, it turned out to be the power steering pump that was worn
out (GBP 500). The second, it was the steering rack (GBP 700).
Is it only on reverse? I had something similar in an A3 recently, slow
reverse caused this terrible squealing noise coming from somewhere
(difficult to identify inside the car). After several visits to the
dealers ("we can't find any noise on the car sir") they cleaned out the
entire braking system (FOC!) and that did the trick.
Here's hoping it's something similar with yours and not an expensive
