Very odd EPS noise help!

Alright my girlfriends 09 mini s is making a very odd sound coming from the rack/steering wheel. It only occurs standing still or under 15mph with or without the key on. It's a whining/ grinding noise when you turn the wheel I lifted it in the air and disconnected the tie rods, and it still continues. So far the nose doesn't hinder the steering operation. I'm leaning towards eps rack and pinion but I know it's very uncommon for them to go. Any insight would be fantastic, thank you in advance.
