Question

Screeching noise when turning right

Hello my name is Jonathan, a possible diagnose of what might be wrong with the car would be greatly appreciated.

Question: What is wrong with the car?
Can I fix it on my own? (Never worked on a car before)

History of car:
2006 Lexus Is250
2.5L V6 (AWD)
175,000km

Problem:
When I make a right turn there is this noise. Video is posted below. Between .15 - .20 seconds you will hear the noise. When I turn the steering wheel right; more than quarter way it starts making these noises.
When I make a left turn everything seems to be fine; recently I have noticed if I turn the steering wheel all the way left, the same noise appears. It is not as noticeable compared to a right turn. The noise is very faint.

Want to thank anyone for helping in advance.

I have to agree with prior answers on this one.

Power Steering

The car uses electronic power steering, so it doesn't use fluid. Thank you for your insight.

There are priors on this.

Without diving into model specifics you always try the cheap ideas first or dismiss them.

Is this a 100K+ mile car? Might be time to let a mechanic give you an estimate. While I think we should thank them for their time to give such, it often tells us what's in need of repair.
