    Steering Wheel Squeaking

    Iíve noticed that my steering wheel is making a squeaking noise during turns. Itís more of an intermittent squeak, or like a series of short squeaks (squeak, squeak, squeak), rather than one long squeak as the wheel is being turned.

    The car was in the shop back in the fall having hail damage repaired, not sure if something was reinstalled incorrectly.

    Any ideas?

    IDK. Help us out. Same position for squeak every time? Does it do it in park? Can you apply pressure to the wheel to alter it? Was your steering wheel off during those repairs?

    Not sure if the steering wheel was removed or not. I'll have to check at lunch and get answers to those other questions though. Thanks for the advice, I'll back to you ASAP.

    Re: Steering Wheel Squeaking

    I am having a similar problem, but I am not sure if it is my steering wheel. It only seems to happen when it is cold out. It squeaks moving it in small quick movements, or over bumps (I think my wheel moves over bumps a bit). It is very annoying but I can't narrow it down to an absolute location. I am thinking of greasing the steering shaft as the clunking noise while turning is back. It is just too cold out to do it now.

    Re: Steering Wheel Squeaking

    It's been discussed here on a thread dealing with steering noises etc and if it's what I think it may be, it's the prelude to a clunking noise. It's likely the same problem many of us have experienced with the 6er's steering set up. Which means you take into the stealer or grease it as per "How to lube intermediate steering shaft" by ahuhn.

    Re: Steering Wheel Squeaking

    Also what I was wondering was it actually the steering wheel or something in the steering

    Re: Steering Wheel Squeaking

    Just a follow-up for this. It does make the squeaking sound when the car is in park, but it doesnít seem to start making the noise until the wheel has been turned a full turn, then it starts.

    Re: Steering Wheel Squeaking

    Try greasing as per ahuhn's thread, as I mentioned above, and see if that does the trick.
