NOISE FROM STEERING COLUMN

2003 Saturn Vue

Steering problem
2003 Saturn Vue 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 56000 miles

Just in the last couple of weeks a " grinding" or " ratcheting" noise has started coming from my steering column when I turn the wheel. It sounds like it is right inside the steering column just behind the steering wheel. It does not matter whether the vehicle is cold or warm. The steering itself is not affected, it steers just fine. The tighter the turn the tighter the sound. Can you give me any suggestions as to what this might be? Thank you very much for your help.
