    Squeaky steering wheel

    Hey everybody i have noticed that my steering wheel squeaks(not clunks) when parking or turning at low speeds. I have taken off the steering wheel column cover but it seems to be coming from where the top of the steering column attaches to the steering wheel. I haven't taken the airbag out for fear of deploying it but does anyone have a clue what the hell the problem could be because although not a major problem it really pisses me off.

    Yeah it sounds like its comming from the steering wheel. I've read that it could be the sir coil but that was in other cars could that pertain to the 6?

    Re: Squeaky steering wheel

    My GFs torrent GXP had same EXACT thing, rack-n-pinnon was bad and sway bar links. Hers wasn annyoing as hell, with radio off just squeeked away at low speeds, sounded like it was the oming from the steering colum inside the cabin.

    I dont know if steering is power train or not. GM, prob not unfortianlly.

    It seems to be worst when its cold out and almost goes away when its over 70 degrees.

    Re: Squeaky steering wheel

    You guys have the same problem as me!

    What was the solution?
    Did you guys lube it, or replace it?

    and if you replaced it how much? approx?!

    Re: Squeaky steering wheel

    Just a quick update:
    I ran across this video on youtube that shows the exact squeak in my steering (possible some of yours)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfY9UV103PY
    Obviously this isn't my car, but it replicates the exact sound.

    So you guys let me know if you've heard this?!

    Thanks

    Re: Squeaky steering wheel

    Ive always had this and it pretty much describes what everyone else is saying. Im not gonna pay to get it fixed because its not worth it unless I can fix it myself easily.
