Grinding noise when turning steering wheel?

I picked up my Model Y about a week ago. There is a grinding noise when I turn my steering wheel. The noise is coming from the steering column. When the steering wheel is telescoped all of the way out, the grinding noise stops but returns when I put the steering wheel back in a normal driving position. Has anyone else experienced a grinding noise when turning the steering wheel?

I just noticed the other day at full lock to the left. Caught me off-guard and I immediately turned the wheel clockwise. I thought it was an anomoly but will try to replicate in the coming days.
