Had this happen, My fluid disappeared, so I refilled it, and took it into the dealer,
ALL the fluid had gone into the rubber cover, around the Rack and Pinion ?
They had to keep it overnight, to get all the parts,Covered under warranty. YEAAAAAA !
This happened at about 34K miles.

Mine moans after driving for 20-30 minutes and only when turning right at low speeds or turning the wheel right while in park. No moan when turning left.
