What model punto have you got? (year?)

And when you replaced the break pads, did you smear some copper greese on the rear of them?

The breaks squeeking could be that they havent put any copper grease on the back of the pads. As yours is a Mk2 it wont have a power steering pump as such, as it is electrically operated. (See in the main bit of the punto forum at the top the bit about electronic PS)
The noise when turning right could be a wheel bearing.

OK i hope its not bearings (ignoring it)
amusing on not having a pump shows my knowledge (ignoring it)
and with the breaks didn't squeak today due to being hotter could be the cold? (ignoring it)
