I had an apparent PS pump failure on a 2000 328. When you start the car it makes a ton of noise and when you turn the wheel it's horrifically loud and grinds. We had one fail about 80k miles ago so I thought I was familiar with the symptoms.

Anyways, drove the car about 12 miles home no issues, let it set for a week, started it up the other night and moved the car into the garage to get started on replacing the pump and some other stuff and suddenly...the noise stops. Everything is smooth and quiet. I turn the wheel and there's no sound that get's louder or dip in rpm. I drove the car for a few minutes at slow speed doing a lot of turning and such and everything seemed fine.

Kinda baffled.

Anyone have this happen before or have something else that broke and seemed to be the ps pump.
